Despite this, he experienced a huge amount of loss as well. Due to this, Hannibal was not able to push into the capital of Rome, but the revered General Scipio also did not have the adequate forces to fend off Hannibal. Rome’s dispatched forces to Iberia and North Africa raided the Carthaginian villages and towns, so Hannibal, in 203 B.C., traveled back to Carthage and deserted his campaign against Rome to defend his country.
