Historical background


(47 BC

Scipio, who had revealed the conspiracy of Catiline Cicero in 62 BC, was consul with Pompey in 52 BC He commanded the center at the battle of Pharsalia June 6, 48 BC - C. Then, he found refuge in Africa where the family of the Scipios had considerable latifundiæ (agricultural properties) with the eldest son of Pompey. The headquarters of Pompeii was located in Utica thirty kilometers from the ruins of Carthage. Caesar landed in Africa and the final fight took place at Thapsus February 6, 46 BC Scipio and his ally, Juba I, King of Mauretania, were defeated. In desperation to escape, Scipio committed suicide as Cato in Utica. Caesar created the province of Africa Nova and gave a new status to the territory of Carthage. He then returned to Rome, where he celebrated a fourfold triumph.
