12. Surnamed the Kid (Haedus, Liv. 30.42, Ἔριφος, Appian, App. Pun. 34), was one of the leaders of the party at Carthage favourable to peace towards the end of the Second Punic War. Hence when the envoys sent by Scipio were in danger of their lives from the fury of the populace at Carthage, it was this Hasdrubal, together with Hanno, the leader of the anti-Barcine party, that interposed to protect them, and sent them away from the city under convoy of two Carthaginian triremes. (Liv. 30.25; Appian, App. Pun. 34.) According to Appian (Ib. 49), he was one of the ambassadors sent to Scipio to sue for peace after tho battle of Zama (B. C. 202)). Livy also mentions him as one of the envoys (all men of the highest rank at Carthage) deputed to Rome to fix the terms of the final treaty of peace on that occasion, and attributes the success of the negotiation in great measure to his personal influence and ability. (Liv. 30.42). On his return to Carthage he is again mentioned as taking part against Hannibal in the discussions concerning the peace. (Id. ib. 44.)
