 Hamilcar Barca - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
He distinguished himself during the First Punic War in 247, when he took over the chief command in Sicily at a time when the island was almost completely in the hands of the Romans.
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.
This Hamilcar has been confused with another general who succeeded to the command of the Carthaginians in the First Punic War, and after successes at Therma and Drepanum was defeated at Ecnomus (256 BC).

Ancient China: The Chou, 1050-256 BC The Chou, 1050-256 BC When the Chou usurped the throne from the Shang dynasty, China itself was split into several states.
This begins the period of the Eastern Chou, which was to last until its overthrow by the Ch'in in 256 BC; in Chinese history, this period is called "the Spring and Autumn period" (771-401 BC) and the "Warring States Period" (401-256 BC).
