Masinissa was the son of the chieftain Gaia of a Numidian tribal group, the Massylii. He was brought up in Carthage, an ally of his father. At the start of the Second Punic War, Masinissa fought for Carthage against Syphax, the king of the Masaesyli of western Numidia (present day Algeria), who had allied himself with the Romans. Masinissa, then about 17 years old, led an army of Numidian troops and Carthaginian auxiliaries against Syphax's army and won a decisive victory (215-212 BC). He was betrothed to the daughter of the Carthaginian general Hasdrubal Gisgo.

Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.Je pensais recevoir 2 gravures identiques étant donné le titre mais je n'en ai eu qu'une seule. Le titre ne correspond apparemment pas à la description.
Sinon j'en suis contentThe title states that there are only 2 other known examples of this work on record (Bibliographically), not that there are two woodcuts on offer. Thank you for bidding with us.
