Early Carthaginian

Historical Overview Section

Carthage was founded in 814 BC by Phoenician settlers from the city of Tyre. Between 280 and 275 BC, the Phyrric army of Pyrrhus of Epirus fought Carthage in Sicily after he was asked to help free the island from Carthaginian dominance. The war ended inconclusively after the Sicilians decided Pyrrhus' rule was no better than Carthage.

The First Punic War (264 BC - 241 BC) was fought partly on land in Sicily and Africa, but was also a naval war to a large extent. The struggle was costly to both powers, but after more than 20 years of war, Rome emerged victorious
