Details

This Carthaginian elephant with howdah includes a driver (in so much as you can 'drive' an elephant) and two crew. The crew are supplied with a javelin and sarissa.

This is an African forest elephant of the breed used by Carthage and the Ptolemaic Successors. It was much smaller than the Indian elephant and with less pronounced tusks. Nevertheless, it still managed to terrify the Romans!

These can be purchased as:

a single elephant or
a unit of three elephants.
