- Fanon: The tradition that Hannibal's Oretani wife was named Himilce came actually from this poem, not being covered in any other serious chronicle. Then again, given that Silius probably had access to research material we do not have today, it might be perfectly true.
- Germans Love David Hasselhoff: The Cantabrian mercenary, Larus, has a following in his native Spain, probably for being such a badass. He received his own Graphic Novel in 2001, Larus the Cantabrian by Andrés Torres, and an entire trilogy dedicated to his echo during the Cantabrian Wars, Larus: The Legend of the Millennium Tree by Simón Hergueta, in 2018.
YMMV / Punica
