4. One of the ambassadors sent by Hannibal to Philip of Macedonia in B. C. 215. The ship in which they sailed was taken by the Romans, and the ambassadors themselves sent as prisoners to Rome. (Liv. 23.34.) We are not told whether they obtained their freedom; and consequently it is uncertain whether the Bostar who was governor of Capua with Hanno, in 211, is the same as the preceding. (Liv. 26.5, 12; Appian, Annib. 43.)
