EtymologyEdit

First attested in the 16th century (Christopher Marlowe, Dido, Queen of Carthage), from Middle French Carthage, from Latin Carthāgo, which was in turn derived from Etruscan *𐌂𐌀𐌓𐌈𐌀𐌆𐌀 (*carθaza), from Ancient Greek Καρχηδών (Karkhēdṓn), ultimately from Phoenician 𐤒𐤓𐤕-𐤇𐤃𐤔𐤕(qrt-ḥdšt, literally new city). More at Carthāgō.
