The site was well chosen. It was naturally strong, situated as it was on what was normally a lee shore at the head of a promontory. This is an oblique aerial view of the site of Carthage. Peace, however, would be short lived, as the Romans were about to step over to Sicily, which was the first country beyond the shores of Italy on which they set foot, and cross swords with a potential rival in the western Mediterranean, the great Phoenician foundation of Carthage. Probably the largest conflict of the ancient world, the Punic Wars, as history has named them, marked an important phase in the story of Rome and the rise of its empire.

Before the first war, Rome was still a purely Italian power, not even in control of northern Italy. During the second war Hannibal had destroyed its armies and overrun the Italian peninsula. After the last, with Carthage a smoking ruin, its writ effectively ran from the Levant to Iberia and from the Alps to the Sahara.

That, however, is not part of our present interest. Carthage, at the time of the first war with Rome, was the greatest power in the western Mediterranean. Its wealth was proverbial, with Poly bios Originally one of many landing sites and trading stations established by Phoenician settlers, Carthage had been founded even before Rome was only a huddle of huts and hovels squatting by the Tiber, According to Timaios of Tauromenion FGr Hist, F 60 the settlers pitched up in BC conveniently near the mouth of the river Bagradas Oued Medjerda , having sailed directly either from the metropolis of Tyre, one of the leading seaports of Phoenicia, or from the next-door colony of Utica, founded earlier by the Phoenicians.

The Sicilian-Greek Timaios lived in the 3rd century BC, a time when it was-still possible to draw directly on Punic sources for information, but the archaeological evidence is still short of this traditional foundation date, the earliest deposits found in the sanctuary of Tanit, the tutelary goddess of the city, belonging to BC or thereabouts.

Whatever the true date, Carthage was destined over time to take the place of Tyre at the head of the Phoenician world of the west, and in the process acquire sufficient power to become a rival on equal terms first with the Greeks and then with the Romans. By the time of the outbreak of the first war, Carthage controlled the whole coast of northern Africa from Cyrenaica to the Atlantic, partly through its own colonies, partly through having taken under its aegis other Phoenician colonies, such as Utica.

Though numerous, these colonies were mostly quite small, surviving because the coastal region was apparently otherwise sparsely inhabited.
