Punic faith a term for treachery, from the character attributed to the Carthaginians by the Romans.
Punic Wars three wars between Rome and Carthage, which led to the unquestioned dominance of Rome in the western Mediterranean. In the first Punic War (264–241 bc), Rome secured Sicily from Carthage and established herself as a naval power; in the second (218–201 bc), the defeat of Hannibal put an end to Carthage's position as a Mediterranean power; the third (149–146 bc) ended in the total destruction of the city of Carthage.

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).
Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.
Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:
Modern Language Association
The Chicago Manual of Style

- Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
- In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
