I think you can add another Samnite War as well as the Truceless War in 240-238. Carthage fighting against her mercenaries, you will understand WHY Hannibal was never betrayed by his mercenaries.

accepted this fact - you just don't cross a Barca."
Florent wrote:Here is Dan Fournie complete introduction to his article about this WAR.
" Have you ever wondered how it was that Hannibal led an
army of mercenaries for two decades and never faced a
serious rebellion or major desertion? His army was often
hungry, always pushed hard by the Romans and usually
faced appalling conditions. Yet his soldiers of fortune
invariably remained loyal. Many historians credit this
phenomena to Hannibal's charismatic leadership and his
concern for the welfare of his men. But there was a darker
side. Hannibal's army had been created and trained by his
father, Hamilcar Barca. And every mercenary in that army
soon learned the tales of the Truceless War. The long
shadow of Hamilcar's ruthless suppression of that rebellion
lingered in the collective memory of Hannibal's army.
