This chapter narrates Hannibal's years, first as an honoured—yet sidelined—military adviser to the Seleucid Great King of the East, Antiochus III, until Antiochus lost his unwise war with Rome and western parts of his empire. Wanted by the Romans, Hannibal moved east again, helping Artaxias the new king of Armenia to found Artaxata (which still exists) but ending his days as guest of Prusias II, king of Bithynia on the Sea of Marmara, whose new city of Prusa he also laid out. When Roman envoys arrived to arrest him, he took poison hidden in a ring.

Keywords:   Seleucids, Antiochus III, Artaxias, Prusias II, Prusa, Hannibal's ring
