Hannibal (Mercenary War)
Hannibal (died 238 BCE) was a Carthaginian general who took part in the Mercenary War between Carthage and rebel mercenaries. He should not be confused with the more renowned Hannibal Barca, son of Hamilcar Barca.
During the siege of Tunis he was captured during a night raid and crucified, along with some other high-ranking Carthaginians.
