Episode 8 - Timoleon and the End of the Second Sicilian War

November 1, 2017

With Dionysius out of the way, Carthage, despite internal struggles, began to extend her authority over most of Sicily through strategic alliances and concentrated military actions.  Syracuse had almost immediately returned to her old ways after Dionysius's death, and her people were divided in endless squabbles and feuds.  With Syracuse temporarily out of the picture, it looked as if Carthage would finally be able to establish order on the turbulent island.  However, it wasn't to be, for an obscure Corinthian general now appeared on the scene, handing Carthage its greatest defeat in Sicily to date and revitalizing Syracuse to fight another day.
