(p.142) Chapter 9 Hannibal: Memory and Myth

Dexter Hoyos

Liverpool University Press

The final chapter discusses whether Hannibal and Carthage could have won the war, why—partly because of strategic decisions by him—they lost, and what the consequences could have been of a Carthaginian victory. It outlines Roman views of him and of Carthage, for example in Plautus’ play Poenulus, in Cicero, and in Horace, and assesses the extent of Hannibal's achievements in war and in peace.

Keywords:   Carthage, strategy, Plautus’ Poenulus, Horace
