The purpose of this paper is to analyse the literary traditions concerning the death of Hannibal, with a specific focus on the more detailed account proposed by Nepos (Hann. 12), Livy (XXXIX 51-52), and Plutarch (Flamin. 20). This episode, in fact, still has not deeply studied and, therefore, deserves further attention and interest. The analysis will underline the use of shared sources (especially Polybius and Roman Annalists), points in common, and differences. Moreover, the paper will address chronological issues concerning the exact year of the death of Hannibal, which is still at the centre of a historical debate.
