8. An officer in the army of Hannibal, who reduced the town of Petelia in Bruttium (B. C. 216), after a siege of several months' duration, during which the inhabitants had suffered the greatest extremities of famine. (Liv. 23.20
This conquest is ascribed by Appian (Annib.
29) to Hanno, who, in fact, held the chief command in Bruttium at this time.
