From Instagram @warboard: Agrigentum 262 BC. Rome is in trouble. Though the elephants are gone now, they caused havoc before finally dispatched and the advancing principes suffered huge casualties, without being able to pin down the mass of light armed Punic infantry. Final attempt by Rome to turn the battle fails catastrophically and the battle is over 7:3. Two Roman leaders with their triarii units charge, but the Punic auxillia unit that was the target survives and one of the triarii units is wiped out in the Carthaginian counterattack.

Another, earlier battle from @warboard: Agrigentum 262 BC. The Punic army consisted in this battle of too many light units and could not win the toe to toe combats with the legions, once the main bodies were locked in hostile proximity, after all the elephants were killed. Final blow was delivered by Roman right flank medium cavalry charging deep into the Carthaginian formations, destroying a unit of javeliners.
