The ancient texts speak of the relaxation of the troops at the siege of Numancia because too many women and in particular prostitutes lived among the soldiers. Lust and drunkenness had made legionaries less disciplined and combative. Scipio immediately took control of the camp and restored order and discipline. He subjected the troops to a rigorous and intensive training which allowed him to finish this campaign quickly and victoriously.
