Etymology[edit]

First attested in the 16th century (Christopher Marlowe, Dido, Queen of Carthage), from the French form of Latin Carthāgo, which was in turn derived from [script needed] (*Carθaza), from Ancient Greek Καρχηδών (Karkhēdṓn), ultimately from Phoenician 𐤒𐤀𐤓𐤕𐤇𐤀𐤃𐤀𐤔𐤕 (Qart-ḥadašt, New City). More at Carthāgo.
