Map - Battle of Himera 480 B.C.
The Battle of Himera (480 BC), supposedly fought on the same day as the more famous Battle of Salamis, or at the same time as the Battle of Thermopylae, saw the Greek forces of Gelon, King of Syracuse, and Theron, tyrant of Agrigentum, defeat the Carthaginian force of Hamilcar the Magonid, ending a Carthaginian bid to restore the deposed tyrant of Himera. The battle led to the crippling of Carthage's power in Sicily for many decades. It was one of the most important battles of the Greek-Punic wars.

This representation of the Battle of Himera 480 B.C. is based on "History of Sicily Volume I" by Edward A. Freeman p. 414 -417 and "History of Sicily Volume II" by Edward A. Freeman p. 180-190.
