I would like to address the veterans to the map creators. Six months ago, I was translating all the scenarios for Carthage on this site. And found that still a lot of battles with this ancient country is missing. Alessandro Crespi proposed to apply to the veterans project. Maybe you'll agree to help. And someone will be interested to create such battles.
With the permission of Alessandro I will then post a list of the battles that isn't found.
If anyone is willing to help, please write me. Or in this thread or in a PM

However, the circumstances changed the situation in the opposite direction. Political strife broke out in Carthage itself, which affected the state of its army operating in Sicily.

He prevented the importation of grain to the Syracuse, as he dominated the sea; destroyed crops in the country, taking it immediately after he seized the area around the Olympus, which is located in front of the city to the South, on the shore of a Large Harbour, near the mouth of the river Anapa.
Immediately upon arrival to the city, he decided to attack the walls of Syracuse. But the townspeople, recognizing the intentions of the enemy, sent by night about three thousand infantry and about four hundred horsemen, and ordered them to take Evreli the narrow entrance in the Western part of the plateau Epipole, which lies above the town to the West and overlooking the valley of the ANAP.
Hamilcar led those who always fought beside him, followed defector Deinocrates assigned to the cavalry. The bulk of the infantry was divided into two phalanges, one consisting of the Carthaginian and the other of the Greek allies. Meanwhile, the army began the confusion because of the narrowness and obstruction of the roads, as well as the darkness (it was night).
At this point, the Syracuse, who occupied Eurorail, saw that the carthagians were moving in disarray, while they themselves held a higher position, attacked the enemy. They also fired the Carthaginians from the heights. The Carthaginians were put to flight. But since the terrain was not wide passage, some of them were trampled by their own riders, others fought among themselves, as if the enemies, due to darkness.

Hamilcar was captured. In Syracuse, he was tortured and his head was severed. Thus the siege army of the Carthaginians broke Antant, brother Agatocle. Moreover, the commander of the Carthaginian Hamilcar died. The remnants of the Carthaginian army soon gathered and chose the commander over the Greeks of Deinocrates, and the Carthaginians gave the authorities those who were second in importance after Hamilcar.

16) Utica. 307 BC War of Carthage with Agathocles
Soon, Agathocles decided to declare himself king. After that, he decided to attack the ancient Phoenician colony, a longtime ally of Carthage — the city of Utica. Utica at one time joined Agatocle, but now he had fallen away from him. Having made a sudden attack on Utica and captured 300 citizens who were caught in the suburbs, Agafokl first offered a pardon and demanded to hand over the city, but when the citizens refused, he built a siege machine (probably moving towers, as "gelepol"), brought prisoners to her, and took her to the walls. But it did not shake the desire of utilized to protect the city. Agathocles, posted by car catapults, slingers, and archers began to attack. Residents of the city in response also used throwing weapons despite the fact that the enemy used a human shield from their compatriots. When Agathocles saw that the inhabitants of Utica intend to fight, he built his army in a position to storm from all sides and, in spite of the points where the walls were badly folded, broke into the city. Agathocles massacred and plundered the city. After he left a garrison in the city.
Then Agathocles led his army in position against Hippocrite (Hippos Diarra, modern Bizerta), around which there were swamps. After a vigorous siege and using the best of his people in the sea battle, Agafokl stormed the city. When he conquered this city, he became master, most places along the sea, and of the peoples living in the country, except for nomadic, some of whom joined him under the Treaty of friendship, and some wait for the outcome of the war. Capture Agathocles Hippo and Utica to the West of Carthage put puniyskaya the capital of the threat of starvation

17) Miltini 306 BC War with Carthage Agathocles
Arahat left Alaflam to command the army in Africa, initially had some success by sending in the inner region of Libya part of the army under the command Almaha. The computers have taken big city Tokey, then conquered many nomads, who lived nearby. Then he captured the city Fellini and subjugated the neighbouring areas, the so-called espadanedo. Then the Computers took over the city Meshalo. He also captured Hippocrates (not the one that took Agathocles). The computers captured the free city of Akris, which he gave to the soldiers to plunder after he had enslaved the people.
Gaining a lot of trophies, Computers, back to Arigato. The latter sent his army back to the interior of Libya. However, the city Miltini, Computers was defeated in street battles.

18) the Battle in the area Pithecusa. 306 BC War of Carthage with Agathocles
The computers then went through the high ridge, a distance of about 200 steps (about 23 miles) and approached the area Pithecusa, where the possession of three cities — one assault, the other two conviction. However, learning of the approach of enemy forces, retreated to Computers Arigatou.
After these events, the Senate of Carthage held a meeting and the senators decided to create three armies and send: one against the cities on the coast, the second — in the Central region, and the third — in the interior of the country. They hoped to lift the siege and provide the city with food, which was not enough as Carthage had a lot of refugees because of the war. When 30,000 Carthage soldiers were sent out of the city, the people who remained as a garrison were only enough to protect themselves, but because of their wealth they enjoyed everything in abundance, and the allies who so far, because of their fear of the Greeks, were forced to conclude a Treaty with him, again found courage and hurried back to the earlier Alliance with Carthage.
When Arahat saw that the whole of Libya is occupied by the Carthaginian army, he also divided his army, part he sent in a coastal area of the remaining forces, he gave part of it Ashreinu and sent him forward, and the part he took himself, leaving a garrison in Tunis.
Hanno, who commanded the army in the Central region, ambushed Ashiana and suddenly attacked him, killing more than 4 thousand soldiers and about 200 horse, among whom was the commander himself, Ashion; among the other Greeks, some were captured, some escape, fled to Arigato, which was at a distance of about 500 stages (about 57 miles).
At the same time Himilco, who was appointed to lead the campaign in the interior region, ambushed Imaha, Arahat commander, led his army, heavily encumbered with booty of the previously captured cities. When the Greeks pulled their forces and challenged him to a fight, Himilco left part of his army under arms town, giving them orders that when he would retreat to a feigned flight, they should pounce on the pursuers. He brought half his men and taking the fight on short distance from the camp immediately fled as if in panic.
Soldiers Imaha delighted with his victory and generally not thinking about the preservation of order, in disorder pursued the retreating, but when suddenly from another part of the city came forward a second Carthaginian army, fully prepared for combat and when a large army shouted in unison, the Greeks panicked. The carthagians rushed at the Greeks, who were turned into a mess and frightened by a sudden attack. As a result, the Greeks were defeated.
As the Carthaginians cut off the escape routes of the enemy in his camp, the EVM was forced to retreat to the nearest hill, which was poorly provided with water. When the carthagians surrounded the place, the Greeks, who became weak from thirst and gave way to the enemy, almost all were killed. In fact, of the 8,000 Marines, only 30 survived, and 840 riders fled the battlefield.

When Pierre got control of the fortress Gerty (Herctae), then took all the possessions of Carthage in Sicily, except Lilibet.
Thus, Pyrrhus conquered almost the whole of Sicily, except Lilibet.

Hoping to take this castle Marina power Hannibal Barca made, taking with him the cavalry and light infantry, and unexpectedly attacked her in the night. However, Hannibal failed to deceive the guards, was raised a cry that was heard in Placentia. Thus at dawn was Consul Publius Cornelius Scipio (Tiberius Sempronii long at that time was in Rome) with the cavalry and legions.

Residents Victual, upon learning of the victory of the Romans under Placentia, cheered, inspired by the courage, took up arms and went out to meet Hannibal.
