PS the PC in Pisae is removed

Rule 19.4
During the Political Isolation Phase, each player (starting with the Roman Player) must remove all his non-walled, non-tribal PC markers that are isolated. A PC marker is isolated if the player cannot trace a path of spaces from the PC marker to a friendly CU or a friendly controlled Walled City, Tribe or port. A besieged Walled City can still supply other PC markers. THE PATH CANNOT CROSS A MOUNTAIN PASS, nor enter a space containing an enemy PC marker or neutral Tribe unless a friendly CU is present in that space. The path may enter and exit a space that contains enemy CUs only if the space also contains a friendly PC.

I assume Careles in Sardinia

2 3/8/2018 5:43:00 PM 218 BC Rome Message 1. Alternate Setup
Carthage:

Boii: 3 CUs
Insubres: 3 CUs
Saguntum: Hannibal, Gisgo, Mago, 2 Elephants, 6 CUs
New Carthage: Hasdrubal, 2 CUs
Carthage: Hanno, 4 CUs

Rome:

Massilia: P. Scipio, 8 CUs
Nemausus: 2 CUs
Rhone: 2 CUs
Agrigentum: Longus, 8 CUs

Thus Scipio can be destroyed by Hannibal on t=his way to Italy
plus the 6 Gauls mean that the Alpine attrition does not reduce Hannibal to defeatable

3. Transport Rule.
Carthage can transport 1 CU with a general and obtain a -1 drm on
the Naval Table.

4. Mountain Crossings.
The optional rule on mountain pass attrition is mandatory. That is, the modifiers are: Alps = 0; Non-Alps = -2

5. Syracuse.
The Syracuse card is treated as an event that must be played by the Carthaginian player, and may be played by the Roman player if he controls Syracuse. In the latter case this would be to his own detriment, but it precludes its late game usage by his opponent. In effect, it is now a dual-player event, and it can only be postponed by the Roman player. Once played as an event, it is removed from the deck
