"The Roman player at the beginning of the game, can get both units in the red rectangle, off the map. They can enter the map at the beginning of round 5 game Roman, from any hex map in the left sector reported by Roman arrows."

I don't see a red rectangle. Perhaps this scenario page is missing something ?

the Metaurus battle seems particularly ill-served by scenarios, admittedly it is a confusing one in the sources, and difficult to simulate in C&C (esp. Epic) because of Nero's march from one flank to the other. However, it is one of the most important battles of the 2nd Punic War, so it would be good to see a better scenario, based on the account of Polybius

and to a certain extent Livy

both have Claudius Nero on the right flank, and then moving to the Left flank, apparently behind the Spanish troops on the Carthagian Right
