What would be our world like without Rome? Check out this alternate history wherein Carthage erased the Roman Empire in the face of the Earth in my article posted in Istoryadista "Carthagiensis Victoriae: A World Without Rome."
In 38 AH (210 BC), Rome was finally destroyed and the Carthaginians imposed a very crippling penalty on the Romans for waging war against them. The remnant of the Roman Republic made their final stand on southern Italy but the resistance was eventually quelled thanks to the help of Carthage's Macedonian ally Philippos V (Philip of Makedon). All territories of the Republic were incorporated to be ruled by Hannibal while his generals carved out their own domains from southern Gaul to Sardinia.
