3 These were the consuls of 218 B.C., but the siege of Saguntum took place in 219. Livy now returns to —and follows until he has finished the story of the siege in chap. xv. § 1 —the source he had used for the opening chapters of this hook.

Livy becomes aware of the discrepancy and endeavours to dispose of it.
