Enter a world in which Rome fell to Carthage-then rose again. 215 B.C. The Third Punic War has left Rome defeated and in ruins.

But in doing so, he has made a grave miscalculation. 100 B.C. In exile for one hundred and fifteen years, the Romans are about to re-emerge-stronger and more powerful than ever-in an ultimate battle for supremacy.
