Letters from Qart Hadasht by Gold-Seven Letters from Qart Hadasht by Gold-Seven
In his winter quarters in Qart Hadasht in Iberia (today's Cartagena), Hannibal receives letters from Qart Hadasht (Carthage)*. Rom has declared war, and a bold plan of action is beginning to take shape in his mind...

Daniel Smith and Schmincke watercolours on Stillman&Birn watercolour sketchbook. A4 size.

*Yes, the Carthaginians called their towns Qart Hadasht and their sons Hannibal. Or Hasdrubal if you were lucky. They even surpassed Roman ingenuity with names ("Hey, Primus, Secundus, Quintus, Valeria, Valeria, and Valeria, come to dinner!")
