(Both) If you use this card as an OC to siege Tarentum, it comes under your control without a Siege die roll. Enemy CUs inside are eliminated.

Message from Rome:
Rome 217 Card 6

Activate Longus. Several options for him:
* Move against the 1 CU in Sena (to be promptly obliterated by Hannibal's counterattack)
* Reinforce Rome (leaving all three generals in the same space)
* Move back to Sicily.

I think I'll go with the last. Moves to Rhegium, then Messana.
