  1. Just one small comment: You say that, by the time of the 1st Punic War, Carthage already had colonies in Spain (minute 2:45) but I don't think thats right. In fact, it was Hamilcar Barca (father of Hannibal Barca) who, after the 1st Punic War, asked to the Carthaginian Senate the possibility to move to Spain and stablish colonies over there (year 237 BC). Also, this was the main reason to start the 2nd Punic War, the expansion in Spain by Carthage (which those colonies were almost not even Carthage and more of a state in which the Barca family had absolute authority but still paid taxes to Carthage to keep them happy).

    I think this is right. Other than that, great content.
