Unit 3: Ancient Rome / Punic Wars
Hannibal, Rome's Greatest Foe
From "Carthaginian coin." Coin. Ca. 215 B.C. British Museum.
This Carthaginian coin from the era of the Second Punic War shows Hannibal's actual likeness. Although Carthage, like Rome, was a republic, Hannibal enjoyed such esteem in his homeland that his image was placed on coins as though he were a king.
