He took New Carthage in a single day; and by 206 the Carthaginians were practically driven from Spain. He returned to Rome and was elected consul for 205, and had Sicily assigned as his 'Province.' Scipio early in 204 passed over into Africa, where he was almost uniformly successful; at the end of the year his imperium was prolonged ' until he should finish the war.'
