84 4/12/2021 6:57:00 PM 217 BC Rome Message You are correct on Hannibal. He picked up Gisgo +1 and entered the Battle with 8 total (message 58-59)

For Longus he has 4 Allies due to both East and West Numidia worth 2 each. He has 4 CUs after 2 were dropped in Thevestis in message 39 and when he ended there in message 57.
83 4/12/2021 6:52:00 PM 217 BC Carthage Message I think Hannibal should be 5(1e) in your notation or 4 + 1e in my notation if he lost 3 units in battle and retreat.
82 4/12/2021 6:50:00 PM 217 BC Carthage Message Thanks for correcting the retreat. Taking Hispalis alone is fine.

So for the upcoming battle it looks like before elephants

Message from Rome:
Longus +4 will attempt to Intercept into Thubursicu EN

Success on a 1
79 4/12/2021 6:39:00 PM 217 BC Rome Message Actually the Retreat Loss Table is -2 when losing to a Probe so the Result is just 2. (It's on the Retreat Table and the Battle Card.)

However the 1st Loss picked in a Retreat must be an Elephant (14.12.1 and 17.2 refer)

So Hannibal only loses a total of 3 including 1 Elephant, leaving 4[1e] in my notation 3+1e in yours.

And only 1 PC needs to be Removed. I'll assume just Hispalis BA unless you note otherwise.

I did not expect to Win that Battle. You must have had lots of Flanks and picked the Left that I had 4 of.

Varro: 1 +6 CUs +2 Allies -1 Fail Avoid -2 Elephant Charge= 6

So Varro is 1 leadership + 6 CUs -1 failed retreat -2 elephants +1 Allies = 5 battle cards

Hanno is 2 leadership + 7 CUs + 3 allies = 12 cards
