Hisbaal is the oldest name of Seville.
It appears to have originated during the Phoenician colonization of the Tartessian culture in southwestern Iberia and refers to the god Baal.
According to Manuel Pellicer Catalan, the ancient name was Spal, and in Phoenician it meant "lowland".
During Roman rule the name was Latinized as Hispal and later as Hispalis.
After the Umayyad invasion, the name remained in use among the Mozarabs, being adapted into Arabic as Ishbiliya: since the phoneme /p/ does not exist in Arabic, it was replaced by /b/;
The Latin placename suffix -is was Arabized as -iya, and /æ/ became ī /iː/ due to a phonetic phenomenon called imala.
