Brettian League, Bruttium, Italy, c. 216 - 203 B.C., Allies of Hannibal
|Italy|, |Brettian| |League,| |Bruttium,| |Italy,| |c.| |216| |-| |203| |B.C.,| |Allies| |of| |Hannibal|, All coinage of the Brettii was issued during the Second Punic War when they allied with Hannibal. The Brettii joined Hannibal after his victory at Cannae. Hannibal's last base in Italy was Castra Hannibalis, in Bruttium. The ravages of war inflicted a severe blow to the prosperity of Bruttium. Roman punishment for their rebellion completed their humiliation. They lost most of their territory and the whole nation reduced to a state bordering on servitude. They were not admitted like the other nations of Italy to rank as allies but were pronounced incapable of military service, and were only employed by Rome for menial work.
