“Rome attacked Carthage in c. 264 B.C.E. This was the beginning of the Sicilian War, for the attack had created an insurrection in Carthagenian controlled Sicily, the island being a colony of Carthage at the time. The Carthagenian garrison from Sicily followed the attack and invaded Rome int he latter part of c. 264 B.C.E., and also occupied the City of Medina. They took command of the Straights of Messina away from the Romans. The indigenous Africans had, for the first time, successfully invaded Southwestern Europe and occupied European territories as conquerors. Rome had suffered her greatest defeat to date in history.”
