Kamarina, Sicily, 413 - 405 B.C.
|Kamarina|, |Kamarina,| |Sicily,| |413| |-| |405| |B.C.|, Kamarina was suffering a plague. A marsh north of the city was the suspected source. The town oracle advised them not to drain the marsh, but in 405 B.C., the leaders ignored the advice. Once the marsh was dry, there was nothing to stop the Carthaginian army. They marched across the newly drained marsh, razed the city, and killed every last inhabitant.
