The Punic Wars had tremendous consequences for the whole development of the West-European and West-Mediterranean civilization and history. The volume contains the proceedings of a symposium held in Antwerp, that dealt with these protracted conflicts between Rome and Carthage relying not only on historiographic sources but also on archaeological, epigraphical and numismatic evidences. The thirty articles, illustrated by many figures and plans, reflect a manifold approach to the problems involved and constitute a major contribution to the study and a better understanding of these events, of their social and economic background, and of their consequences for the history of the Mediterranean world.
