In Livy XXI 45. 8 Hannibal makes a promise to his soldiers, confirming it by a rite very similar to the one performed by the fetials when making a treaty. The main difference is that Hannibal uses a lamb instead of a pig. The author of the paper investigates how and why this motive could come into being, and how it could fit into the narrative of the second Punic war in Livy’s source.
