ROMAN REPUBLIC - ANONYMOUS

(211-202 BC) Anonymes

Scipio Africanus seizes Carthago Nova, but can not prevent Hasdrubal into Italy. The latter was killed at the Battle of Metaurus in 207 BC when Scipio carries the war in Africa in 204 BC forcing the Carthaginians to recall Hannibal. The Carthaginians were defeated at Zama in 202 BC and then ask for peace in the following year.
