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.

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.

Gimme a break Willie, you know elephants can't climb mountains. If he wanted a hump every now and then, why would he choose to travel with a pachyderm. I think you're the one who's dead trunk.
