The Battle of Mutina was fought in 193 BC, near Mutina, between the Roman Republic and the Boii. The Roman army won the battle. The battle marked the total defeat of the Boian Gauls, but since the Consul's victory cost the Romans dear, and the officers of Merula accused him of negligence on his march to Mutina, the senate refused him a triumph on his return to Rome. The battle of Mutina is described by Livy at 35.4-6.
