Welcome to Rome Across Europe!
Whether it was fighting in a civil war or fighting to expand/defend the Kingdom, Republic, or Empire, Rome rarely rested on its laurels. Previously we’ve brought you Rome: The Punic Wars – The First Punic War, Rome: The Punic Wars – The Second Punic War Begins, Rome: The Punic Wars – The Second Punic War Rages On, and Rome: The Punic Wars – The Conclusion of the Second Punic War.
The Third Punic War, or Tertium Bellum Punicum, (149–146 BC) was the third and last of the Punic Wars fought between the former Phoenician colony of Carthage and the Roman Republic. The Punic Wars were named because of the Roman name for Carthaginians (Punici).
Upon the fall of Carthage, their was the annexation of all remaining Carthaginian territory by Rome followed by the death or enslavement of the entire Carthaginian population. The Third Punic War ended Carthage’s independent existence.
We hope you enjoyed the concluding act of the Punic Wars and look forward to you joining us again. Be sure to check us out each day for our goal is to make Roman history come alive.
