    Description

    From the Introduction

    "Once Hannibal had been defeated at Zama in 202 BC, Rome was clear to concentrate on securing and expanding its eastern frontier beyond the Adriatic. The resources required for the Second Punic War had previously forced the Romans to conclude a compromise with peace with Philip V of Macedon, but with the Carthaginian threat removed, it was payback time.

    "The neutral states of Rhodes and Pergamum provided an excuse for war, appealing to Rome for aid against Macedonian aggression, and the legions marched towards Greece. Philip blocked the passes onto the peninsula at Epirus, but a consul named Titus Quincticus Flaminius managed to get a small force around the Macedonian flank. Philip, convinced that the whole Roman army was about to descend upon him, pulled back into Thessaly.

    "The Romans consolidated their hold on Epirus and voted Flaminius in for another term as consul and therefore military leader. After some intense diplomacy to establish which of the less dominant, minor powers of the region were allied to whom, Flaminius and Philip met at Cynoscephalae, named from the Greek for 'dog's head' after the name of a nearby ridge.
