His main achievements were during the Second Punic War, and is best known for defeating Hannibal at the final battle of Zama in 202BC. This victory was one of the feats that earned him the agnomen “Africanus”.
His conquest of Carthaginian Iberia culminated in the Battle of Ilipa in 206BC against Hannibal’s brother Mago Barca.
