Battle of Pydna 168 BC. Romans fight against the Macedonians.
Holy fuck, I remember this picture. I've seen this work on my old history book back in elementary school, but it was in a chapter that was talking about the Second Punic War instead (what a mistake).
Alexander the great!!!
For Macedon! Been a RTWII fan sorry...
Macedonians choosed poorly the battle ground. It wasn't flat, so phalanx wasn't compact...perfect to infiltrate by roman swordmen, and romans were better than macedonians at close combat.
Actually, the Argyraspides were used only by Alexander the great and seleucid Greeks. They weren't in that battle
Buzzsaw (Roman legions) vs. Pin cushion (Macedon phalanx)
Great to see some phalanx actions.
