  The Battle of Pharsalus, 48 BC
From January, 49 BC to Pharsalus (August 9, 48 by the Roman calendar but June 6 by the Julian calendar), Civil War between Pompey and Caesar had divided the Roman world with battles in Italy, Spain, Africa, Gaul, and now Greece.
Pharsalus is one of history's battles where victory comes when one commander has brilliant inspiration into the tactics of his opponent.
Although many secondary battles remained to be fought, the destruction of Pompey's army (and his murder after fleeing to Egypt) essentially decided the Civil War at Pharsalus.

 Pharsalus, battle - WCD (Wiki Classical Dictionary)
The Battle of Pharsalus, in 48 B.C., was the decisive fight between Julius Caesar and the Senate.
The united army, however, was defeated (7 July), and Caesar had only one option: to march inland, cross the Pindus mountains and defeat Pompey's pursuing army somewhere in Greece on a more suitable place.
Almost 6,000 Roman soldiers were killed, and when Caesar surveyed the battlefield at sunset and saw the bodies of the dead senators, he remarked: 'Well, they would have it thus.' This was the end of the Roman republic and the beginning of Caesar's autocracy.
