The Story of Carthage

Excerpt

It is difficult to tell the story of Carthage, because one has to tell it without sympathy, and from the standpoint of her enemies. It is a great advantage, on the other hand, that the materials are of a manageable amount, and that a fairly complete narrative may be given within a moderate compass.

I have made it a rule to go to the original authorities. At the same time I have to express my obligations to several modern works, to the geographical treatises of Heeren, the histories of Grote, Arnold and Mommsen, Mr. Bosworth Smith's admirable "Carthage and the Carthaginians," and the learned and exhaustive History of Art in Phœnicia and its Dependencies, by Messieurs Georges Perrot and Charles Chipiez, as translated and edited by Mr. Walter Armstrong . To this last I am indebted for most of the illustrations of this book.

I have had much help also from Mr. W. W. Capes' edition of Livy" xxi., xxii.
