Oh no, another Michael. Perhaps we can call Mr Taylor "New Michael"....

And I'm certain the stele with the inscription of Scipio's defeat of Hannibal's army at Zama is reposing in Area 51.

Wicked men, you are sinning against your fathers, who conquered the whole world under Philip and Alexander!

In Area 51 you will find Noah's Ark, and a tablet saying that Pythagoras designed the Roman social and military system for a period of 1,200 years.

Gentlemen and all Michaels,

Rather than a trip to Nevada, we should perhaps all meet up in the Siliana valley, Tunisia and really revisit Zama!

I posted a reference earlier to it, but has anyone here read Duncan Ross` book, Kbor Klib and the battle of Zama ?

An unfortunate juxtaposition, perhaps, given that Noah's Ark is mythical!
