'A messenger was seen spurring his horse toward the city', c1912 (1912). Hasdrubal entrusted a letter with four soldiers to be placed in his brother Hannibal's hands. The soldiers were captured by Consul Claudius Nero's men, allowing the letter to fall into enemy hands, revealing Hasdrubal's battle plans. A messenger was sent from Consul Claudius Nero to Marcus Livius Drusus to expect his arrival and strategy to defeat Hasdrubal. From The Story of Rome, by Mary MacGregor.
