Zeugitana - CARTHAGE
Hannibal was defeated at Zama in 202 BC by Scipio Africanus and peace was signed the following year. Hannibal the Carthaginian institutions reform, but was forced to flee first to Antiochus III, then at Prusias of Bithynia and committed suicide in 183 BC Carthage faced with the rise of Numid and his king Masinissa. The third Punic War began in 149 BC (Cato the Elder ended every speech in the Senate by "Carthage must be destroyed"). Three years later, the city was taken and destroyed, its population massacred or enslaved.
