The battle happens a few miles from Rome. After Crixus addresses his army, they begin the battle by rolling ignited boulders down a hill towards the soldiers. The rebels run into the battle, destroying the whole Roman army but suffering many losses as well. Not much of the battle is shown but the Rebels become the victors. The Roman general Arrius is killed and his pendant is taken as a war trophy. Their Victory is short lived however, as Crassus and his army come straight from behind and cease another victory from the rebels, along with the life of Crixus.
