The pay of a mercenary was round the end of the fifth and the beginning of the fourth century BC was at least 5 oboles for a hoplite.
We know that the alliance of Chalcidic poleis against Olynthus in 382 BC decided that a citizen could be excused as hoplite for 3 Aeginetic oboles (= 4 Attic oboles) and as cavalryman for 12 oboles.
For example: in 234/233 BC and 229/228 BC Miletus admited mercanaries as new citizens of the polis.

 Hasdrubal
After Hamilcar's death (228 BC) Hasdrubal, who succeeded him in the command, extended the newly acquired empire by skilful diplomacy, and consolidated it by the foundation of Carthago Nova (Cartagena) as the capital of the new province, and by a treaty with Rome which fixed the Ebro as the boundary between the two powers.
He had on the whole the worst of the conflict, and a defeat in 216 BC prevented him from joining Hannibal in Italy at a critical moment; but in 212 BC he completely routed his opponents, both the Scipios being killed.
He was subsequently outgeneralled by Scipio Africanus Major, who in 209 BC captured Carthago Nova and gained other advantages.

 Hamilcar
Hamilcar Barca, or Barcas (Hebrew barak, lightning), Carthaginian general and statesman, father of Hannibal, was born soon after 270 BC.
After recruiting and training a new army in some Numidian forays he led on his own responsibility an expedition into Spain, where he hoped to gain a new empire to compensate Carthage for the loss of Sicily and Sardinia, and to serve as a basis for a campaign of vengeance against the Romans (236).
Hamilcar stood out far above the Carthaginians of his age in military and diplomatic skill and in strength of patriotism; in these qualities he was surpassed only by his son Hannibal, whom he had imbued with his own deep hatred of Rome and trained to be his successor in the conflict.
