Abstract: Busuttil talks about the two viewpoints of an event that occurred during the final years of the 3rd century B.C., when the king of Numidians arrived in Malta and took large tusks with him back to Africa. In the writings of Cicero and Valerius Maximus exist certain nuances that Busuttil attempts to clarify.
