    Fact #10, “Roman military commander Hannibal filled jars of clay with poisonous snakes and had his soldiers throw them onto enemy ships during a naval battle to incite panic. He won,” has a small issue. Hannibal was a Carthaginian and not a Roman; though at the time of this engagement he was commanding a Seleucid Fleet.

    #10 – Hannibal son of Hamilcar was not Roman, he fought for Carthage AGAINST the Romans. Best known for his invasion of Italy where he attempted to bring elephants over the Alps ( all but 3 froze to death).
