The archaeological area of Nora was previously occupied by a village of nuragic, but soon became an emporium and then a Phoenician city.
After the conquest of Carthage, Nora was the first stage on the sea route from Carthage to Sardinia and its most important city, Cagliari.
The Nora Stone, a Phoenician inscription found at Nora in 1773, has been dated by palaeographic methods to between the late 9th century and early 8th century BCE. Has been interpreted as a Phoenician military victory for conquest of the area.
