The Punic Wars were a series of three wars fought between the Roman Republic and the Carthaginian Empire. These wars were focused in the western Mediterranean, and stretched off and on from 264 to 146 BC. The term "Punic" refers to Carthage, which was originally a colony of the Phoenicians which grew to become an independent city-state and later empire.
