[2] An approximation of Polybius 8.29.6 (web address 1). It explains the deception by which the young hunter Philemenos, a native of Tarentum (*ta/ras; present-day Taranto in Puglia, southern Italy; Barrington Atlas, map 45 grid F4; OCD(4) s.v., tau 112, tau 113), brought a killed wild boar to the city wall at night, tempted the watchman to open the gates, and thus betrayed his city to Hannibal (OCD(4) s.v. and alpha 2452). The time-frame is 213-12 BCE, during the Second Punic War (218-201); cf. alpha 3976.
