Hannibal in the Alps

In 1978, Peter Connolly published his book Hannibal and the Enemies of Rome. It contains, on one single page, a convincing theory about Hannibals‘ route across the Alps, which deserves a bit more attention. Years ago, I checked the area myself; now I’ve devoted two pages to the subject: one on the route, and one in which the texts by Livy and Polybius are placed next to each other, so that the reader can easily see the differences.

And on LacusCurtius: the Greek text of Dio of Prusa‘s Discourse 16 (on distress) and the constellation of Sagitta.
