Abderramán II promoted the sciences, the arts, agriculture and industry. During his reign, the Indo-Arabic numbering system, called position, with a decimal base, was introduced in al-Andalus. Before he was proclaimed emir, he started a library that became very numerous, for which he commissioned highly qualified people to bring him the most interesting copies from the East and with the greatest contribution to knowledge, thus beginning a good collection of books. He attracted the most illustrious scholars of his time to Córdoba and personally cultivated poetry. His brilliant court was dominated by the figures of the musician Ziryab, the alphaquí Yahya (an intolerant and ambitious religious), the concubine Tarub (an intriguing and avaricious woman who wanted to get the throne for her son Abdullah) and the eunuch Nasr (a Christian Spaniard who he abandoned his faith and his manhood to thrive in the emral administration).
