At the same time, the smallest of the Roman armies, that of Silanus and Longinus, contacted the Ambrones in Spoletium. They took up position on a large hill and awaited the barbarian’s attack…
The Romans lost the resulting mêlée (a six to determine permanent losses is not a good roll!).
The Ambrones’ cavalry pursued, to finish the job, forcing the defeated Roman cavalry into their Italian allies behind.
The two ‘units’ of Legio II charged the Ambrones’ warbands, and both suffered devastating defeats.
Marcus Junius Silanus fell on the battlefield#, or perhaps he did the honourable thing, as his command had effectively ceased to exist.
(#Actually, the above engraving shows the death of Roman general Lucius Aemilius Paullus at Cannae, but I'm sure readers will excuse the licence!)
Another major loss for Rome, and a huge blow after the optimism engendered by Firmum.
