The Qin Dynasty (秦朝 Pinyin Qín, Wade-Giles Ch'in; 221 BC - 207 BC) was preceded by the Zhou Dynasty and followed by the Han Dynasty in China.
The unification of China 221 BC under the First Emperor marked the beginning of imperial China, a period that lasted until the fall of the Qing Empire in 1912.
Much of what came to constitute China proper was unified for the first time in 221 B.C. In that year the western frontier state of Qin, the most aggressive of the Warring States, subjugated the last of its rival states, putting an end to the Warring States Period.

The Battle of Herdonea 210 BC Herdonea (210 BC)
The first battle he describes took place in 212 BC and hardly deserves the name "battle." According to Livy, a Praetor named Gnaeus Fulvius was besieging the town.
In the second battle of Herdonea (if Livy is correct) in 210 BC, another Gnaeus Fulvius, this time a Proconsul, fought and lost a much more credible battle against Hannibal (including the death of G. Centumalus himself).

Qin Shi Huang (秦始皇;) (November or December 260 BC - September 10, 210 BC), personal name Zheng, was king of the Chinese State of Qin from 247 BC to 221 BC, and then the first emperor of a unified China from 221 BC to 210 BC, ruling under the name First Emperor.
Eventually, in 202 BC the Han Dynasty managed to reunify the whole of China, which now became officially known as the State of Han (漢國), which can also be translated as the Empire of Han.
Zheng ascended the throne in 247 BC at the age of 12 and a half, and was king under a regent until 238 BC when at the age of 21 and a half he staged a palace coup and assumed full power.

The ban on books was lifted in 191 BC, after the Qin were overthrown by the Han Dynasty.

A less certain piece of information comes from Apollonius choosing to name a curve 'sister of the conchoid' which is assumed to be a name he has chosen to compliment Nicomedes' discovery of the conchoid.
Since Apollonius lived from about 262 BC to 190 BC these two pieces of information give a fairly accurate estimate of Nicomedes' dates.
However, as we remarked the second of these pieces of information cannot be relied on but nevertheless, from what we know of the mathematics of Nicomedes, the deduced dates are fairly convincing.

In the first battle, Roman discipline was so lax that, according to Livy, the Romans began to flee almost as soon as Hannibal's army raised its battle cry.
In the second battle in 210 BC, another Gnaeus Fulvius, this time a Proconsul, fought and lost a much more credible battle against Hannibal.
As a textual critic, of course, one has to wonder if Livy separated two different versions of the same event.
