). A son of Himilco, and one of the most
distinguished officers of Hannibal in the Second Punic War. He is first mentioned at the siege
of Saguntum. After the battle of Cannae he urged Hannibal to push on at once with his cavalry
upon Rome itself; and on the refusal of his commander, he is said to have observed that
Hannibal knew how to gain victories, but not how to use them (Livy,
; Florus, ii. 6).
