Topic: Zyraxes


In the News (Tue 25 Jun 19)

  
  The March of the Getai - The Guild   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-25)
Zyraxes' forces were split into three divisions of equal strength, each made up of 2 units of Getikoi Thorakitai Stratiotai, the armoured phalanx of the Getai, modelled along Greek lines, and 2 Komatai Toxotai, mere archers, but whose arrowstorms had won many a battle in the fierce infighting between tribes and peoples.
Zyraxes knew he was not yet strong enough to force a path to the sea with his current forces--many times the horse archers had ripped his phalanxes to pieces, armour or no.
Goaded by heavy losses and by Zyraxes; clear intent to let them die dishonourable deaths by arrow rather than in comabt, they charged, smashing themselves to pieces on the phalanx, but tearing aside the spears, and still coming, hacking at the hafts with their falxes.

 Perfect Tour  >> THE CITADELS OF DOBROUDJA   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-25)
A Dacian and Bastarn invasion in the South of Danube is rejected by the Macedonian proconsul, Marcus Licinius Crassus, in 29 / 28 B.C. Taking into consideration the adage "divide et impera," Crassus obtained to cooperate with the Getian-Dacian basileus Roles, from the South - West of Dobrudja.
Being helped by this socius et amicus populi Romani, Crassus will defeat other two leaders, Dapyx, who governed the centre of the province, and Zyraxes from the north.
In the last ten years of Augustus' rule (between 27th B.C.-14 A.D.) Dobrudja will enter under the military supervision of the Roman Empire.

 Dio's Roman History Book 51   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-25)
Crassus first sought out all the entrances to the cave, which are tortuous and difficult to discover, walled them up, and in this way subdued the men by famine.
His assault was made both by land and from the Ister (the city is built upon the river), and in a short time, though with much toil, despite the absence of Zyraxes, he took the place.
The king, it seems, as soon as he heard of the Romans' approach, had set off with money to the Scythians to seek an alliance, and had not returned in time.
