Abstract: In the last scene of the 15th book of Punica Silius Italicus described a dramatic event after the battle of the Metaurus (207 B.C.), which the Carthaginians lost. Hannibal’s brother, Hasdrubal Barca, died during the battle. According to Livy’s version, the Romans planted Hasdrubal’s decapitated head in Hannibal’s camp. Silius Italicus in his work presented this event as a kind of Roman repayment for previous lost battles: those of Cannae, the Trebia and the shore of Lake Trasimene.
