IF YOU WISH TO READ THE SHORT HISTORY OF CARTHAGE READ DOWN BELOW THIS LINE…………………………..

Carthage = Katargo The Punic Wars and the Decline of Carthage In the 3d cent. B.C. Rome challenged Carthage's control of the W Mediterranean in the Punic Wars (so called after the Roman name for the Carthaginians, Poeni, i.e., Phoenicians). The first of these wars (264-241) cost Carthage all remaining hold on Sicily. Immediately after the First Punic War a great uprising of the mercenaries occurred (240-238). The growth of Carthaginian power again activated trouble with Rome, and precipitated the Second Punic War (218-201). Although the Carthaginian general was the formidable Hannibal, Carthage was finally defeated, partly by the Roman generals Quintus Fabius Maximus Rullianus (see under Fabius) and Scipio Africanus Major, and partly by the fatal division of the leading families in Carthage itself, which prevented Hannibal from receiving proper supplies. The 3rd Punic War (149-146 B.C.), which ended with the total destruction of Carthaginian power and the razing of the city by Scipio Africanus Minor. It was never rebuilt. Little remains today of this city except for some graveyards, baths, aqueducts and ruins left by the Romans .
