Background

Adherbal was a Carthaginian noble who served as the governor of Gades during the Second Punic War.[1] He was also a Carthaginian military commander in this war under the command of Mago Barca. He is perhaps best known for his defeat at the Battle of Carteia which was a naval battle that occurred in 206 BC as Adherbal was attempting to flee Carthaginian Hispania. His fleet was defeated near the ancient city of Carteia by Gaius Laelius.[2][3][4]
