Theodor Mommsen Quote: “Sertorius was far from being strong…”

Mommsen Quote, remaining ruins of Carthago in Tunis

Sertorius was far from being strong enough to renew the gigantic enterprise of Hannibal. He was lost if he left Spain, where all his successes were bound up with the peculiarities of the country and the people; and even there, he was more and more compelled to renounce the offensive.
