Example text

Even though Hannibal allowed them to resettle in Selinus, the city would never again recover the position it had before the war. The war of Carthage against its former ally is arguably only a minor event in the overall history of the struggle between the Carthaginians and the Greeks on Sicily spanning nearly three centuries from the turn of the sixth to the fifth century bc down to the end of the Second Punic War. Yet for the question of the role of women in war, the episode Diodorus related is highly valuable, even though it has by and large escaped scholarly attention.

6 [Oldfather 1933–54]). 8 [Oldfather 1933–54]). Hannibal’s forces suffered heavy losses in the process, but unlike the Selinuntians he was able to bring forward fresh reserves. 8 [Oldfather 1933–54]) is to be believed, quite literally fought to the last roof tile, succumbing only to the greater numbers of the attackers when they had run out of ammunition. As a consequence, Selinus was thoroughly sacked and burned. 6 [Oldfather 1933–54]), 16,000 citizens were killed in the fighting and more than 5,000 captured: only 2,600 managed to escape.
