He drank poison
He took poison rather than be captured by the Romans. Legend has it that he had a hollow ring which held the poison. This took place at Lybissa on the shores of the Sea of Marmara, sometime between 183 and 181 BC.
The romans were closing in on him and he prefered to commit suicide rather than be captureed. He drank poison and died.
I don't think he died. It's not a cold case file. I hear that FBI agent Clarisse Starling is still hot on his trail…….The Hannibal of old I understand had relations with a camel while crossing the Alps and was crushed to death. The coroner ruled the death as a Humpicide.
He just suddenly died.
He died in prison but it will be interesting to know if someone knows the exact cause.
With his pants unzipped and his mouth open....I was the fly on the wall (smile)
