Was Carthago Nova captured by Gnaeus Pompeius in 46 B.C.E. and Sextus Pompeius in 44 B.C.E.?
Ebook in formato Pdf leggibile su questi device:
The article addresses the question of the role of Carthago Nova during the turbulent years of the war in Hispania in 46-44 B.C.E. The traditional view holds that the city was captured twice during this time by the sons of Pompeius Magnus: firstly by Gnaeus Pompeius in 46 B.C.E. and secondly by Sextus Pompeius in 44 B.C.E. It is argued in this article that there is no compelling evidence to support this thesis, and that the city was captured by neither Gnaeus nor by Sextus, and that it did not play a significant role during the war in Hispania in the years 46-44 B.C.E.
