And then, suddenly, it was all over. David had real problems against Simon's reserve lancers, but the rest of his troops wiped out everything in front of them. In the centre, Gordon's lancers helped to destroy two of our phalanxes. But on our right, my Galatians finally destroyed the enemy light cavalry; flanked and destroyed the enemy medium horse; disordered the enemy phalanx on morale; and then destroyed them too. They suddenly remembered how to fight on horseback! Game over, and a second successive victory for the Seleucids.
We rolled for the next event, and the Romans have increased the strength of their legions in central Italy. We then rolled again, and next time the Later Macedonians will attack the Ptolemaics in Syria. If the attack succeeds, the Macedonians will cut off the Ptolemaic forces further north and link up with their Seleucid allies, who have held out so valiantly. Only time will tell if this is the high water mark of Ptolemaic aggrandisement. And in the meantime, the Roman juggernaut gathers force under a certain Cornelius Scipio.
