Sicilian Thing that's been going on for 2000 years..
Gulf War (229 of 374)-Desert Storm..

Broadcast (New Zealand): 12th February 1991..

The Battle of Cannae was a Major battle of the Second Punic War that took place on 2 August 216 BC in Apulia, in southeast Italy.. The army of Carthage, under Hannibal, surrounded and decisively defeated a larger army of the Roman Republic under the consuls Lucius Aemilius Paullus and Gaius Terentius Varro.. It is regarded both as one of the greatest tactical feats in military history and as one of the worst defeats in Roman history..Reportedly, a Carthaginian officer named Gisgo commented on how much larger the Roman army was..As Livy described, "So many thousands of Romans were dying... Some, whom their wounds, pinched by the morning cold, had roused, as they were rising up, covered with blood, from the midst of the heaps of slain, were overpowered by the enemy..Some were found with their heads plunged into the earth, which they had excavated; having thus, as it appeared, made pits for themselves, and having suffocated themselves"..Cowley claims that nearly 6 hundred legionaries were slaughtered each minute until darkness brought an end to the bloodletting..Only 14,000 Roman troops managed to escape, most of whom had cut their way through to the nearby town of Canusium, is a town and comune in Apulia in southern Italy, between Bari and Foggia, located in the province of Barletta-Andria-Trani and is the burial place of Bohemund I of Antioch..A Roman force of 25,000 led by Lucius Postumius Albinus is ambushed by Gauls near Litana and almost completely wiped out..William was Robert’s only child..He was only 7 years of age when his father died..His mother, Mary Doyle, later remarried Jacob Troxel..They were stationed at Camp Dupont - Military History Teacher Capt Troxel..

Figures for troops involved in ancient battles are often unreliable, and Cannae is no exception..They should be treated with caution, especially those for the Carthaginian side..The Carthaginian army was a combination of warriors from numerous regions, and may have numbered between 40,000-50,000.. Along with the core of an estimated 8,000 Libyans, there were 8,000 Iberians, 16,000 Gauls (8,000 were left at camp the day of battle) and around 5,500 Gaetulian infantry.. Hannibal's cavalry also came from diverse backgrounds..The uniting factor for the Carthaginian army was the personal tie each group had with Hannibal..The Roman forces totaled approximately 79,000 troops: 63,000 infantrye and 6,000 cavalry, and in the two fortified camps another 2,600 heavily armed men and 7,400 lightly armed men..The conventional deployment for armies of the time was placement of infantry in the center, with the cavalry in two flanking wings..The Romans followed this convention fairly closely, but chose extra depth rather than breadth for the infantry in hopes of breaking quickly through the center of Hannibal's line..Since 216 = the smallest cube that is also the sum of 3 cubes + As 6 cubed (6*6*6), 216 is also symbolic of the Mark of the Beast in Christianity -The Roman historian Quintus Fabius Pictor is sent to Delphi in Greece to consult the Oracle for advice about what Rome should do after its defeat in the Battle of Cannae..As the memory of the shock of Hannibal's Victories grew dimmer, the Roman populace gradually started to question the wisdom of the Fabian strategy..

Livy, on the Roman Senate's reaction to the defeat:22.54..For a brief period, the Romans were in complete disarray..Their best armies in the peninsula were destroyed, the few remnants severely demoralized, and the only remaining consul (Varro) completely discredited..As the story goes, Rome declared a national day of mourning as there was not a single person who was not either related to or acquainted with a person who had died..The Romans became so desperate that they resorted to human sacrifice, twice burying people alive at the 4rum of Rome and abandoning an ovarized baby in the Adriatic Sea (perhaps one of the last instances of human sacrifices by the Romans, apart from public executions of defeated enemies dedicated to Mars)..Lucius Caecilius Metellus, a military tribune, despaired so much of the RO-man cause as to suggest that everything was lost, and called the other tribunes to sail overseas and hire themselves into the service of some foreign Prince..The Carthaginian fleet ravages the territory of The Kingdom of Syracuse - The Basilica di San Pietro was the first cathedral of the Christian era, then transformed into a tomb of Saint Sabino (556), patron of Canosa..The Roman temple of Jupiter Taurus peripteral with 6 columns on the short sides hand 10 on the long sides, and a brick staircase, took its name from a statue of Zeus found at the excavation in 1978..A revolt of the Egyptian peasants is put down by Ptolemy IV..that delivers liquid substances directly into a Vein + 216 is the numerical value of Gevurah, the 5th sephirot in the kabbalistic tree of life, and the sum of the letters in God's 72 hidden names + The Bayon temple in Cambodia has 216 gigantic smiling faces Bob..
