Carthage, the Phoenician city on the coast of what is now Tunisia, was the superpower of its day, controlling an empire that spread over most of the Mediterranean.

The Carthaginians depended not only on conscripts at home but also on Iberian cavalrymen, slingers from the Balearic Islands, and mercenary commanders like Xanthippos whom Fields describes as Spartan, and whom artist Steve Noon paints as such, though all that is known for sure is that he was Greek , and all this is well covered.
