14. One of ten ambassadors sent by the Carthaginians to Rome in B. C. 235 to avert the war which the Romans had threatened to declare in consequence of the alleged support given to the revolt in Sardinia. Hanno is said to have effected, by the bold and frank tone which he assumed, what all the previous embassies had failed to accomplish, and obtained a renewal of the peace on equitable terms. (Dio Cass. Exc. 150; Oros. 4.12.) From the terms in which he is mentioned by Dio Cassius and Orosius (Ἄννων τιρ--minimus homo inter legatos), he can hardly have been the same with the preceding, which would at first appear not improbable.
