4. One of the generals appointed by the Carthaginians to conduct the war in Africa against Archagathus, the son of Agathocles. He totally defeated the division of the Syracusan forces under the command of Eumachus, and put them almost all to the sword. After this he occupied the passes and strongholds in the neighbourhood of Tunis, so as completely to blockade Archagathus in that city. (Diod. 20.60, 61.) What part he took in the subsequent operations against Agathocles himself is not mentioned.
