Rome vs. Philip V
"Freedom for the Greeks"
Antiochus III the Great crosses Hellespont to "liberate" Asia
Hannibal comes to help.
The Romans kick his ass. Not only does he not acquire Asia, he loses all territory west of the Taurus mountains.
Rome inadvertantly(?) violates treaty with Tarentum, fleet attacked.
Diplomatic Mission to Tarentum fails disastrously.
Pyrrhus lands. Battle of Heraclea.
Rome refuses to negotiate so long as Pyrrhus in in Italy. Calls in aid from Carthage.
Battle of Beneventum. Pyrrhus leaves. Tarentum musy surrender.
Sulla defeats Mithridates
Arminius defeats Romans at Teutoberger Wald
Or maybe 211 BC
Son of Philip V. Convinced father to execute brother Demetrius, whom the Romans favored.
Third Macedonian War -171—-168, ending in battle of Pydna
Surrendered to L. Aemilius Paullus.
Paullus divides Macedonia after 3rd war into four autonomous principalities w limited connubium/commercium. Military only on northern, Thracian border.
Creates senates in each, surely based on favorability to Rome. Property requirements: favorable? Kallet-Marx thinks not.
At this point, Macedonia may or may not be a province, but by Meyer's definition it is part of the "Empire."
Claimed to be son of Perseus
Requested help from Demtrius Soter, who handed him over to Romans.
But he escaped, raised an army, and wrested Macedonia.
Conquered Thessaly, made alliance with Carthage
Defeated at Pydna, like Perseus.
Afterwards Romans apparently establish a garrison and/or governor.
Born 134 BC
