Cum cura exploratis (Liv. XXII, 12,2): inteligencia militar en Roma durante el siglo III a. C.

Pau VALDÉS MATÍAS

Resumen


Las derrotas sufridas en los años iniciales de la Segunda Guerra Púnica han llevado a considerar que Roma no contaba con una inteligencia militar suficientemente desarrollada. Sin embargo, una revisión de los autores clásicos pone de manifiesto los problemas que plantea esta concepción. Por medio de un análisis de las evidencias escritas proponemos una nueva interpretación de la inteligencia militar romana durante el siglo III a. C.


Palabras clave


Ejército romano-republicano; siglo III a. C.; inteligencia militar; Guerras Púnicas
