2. Father of the Hanno who commanded a portion of Hannibal's army at the passage of the Rhone, B. C. 218. This Bomilcar seems to have been one of the Carthaginian Suffetes (rex, not praetor; see Göttling, Excurs. iii. ad Arist. Polit. p. 484), and to have presided in that assembly of the senate in which the second Punic war was resolved on. (Plb. 3.33, 42; Liv. 21.18, 27, 28.)
