The Battle of the Eurymedon was fought in 190 BC (approximate coordinates: 36°49'00"N, 31°10'20"E) between a Seleucid fleet and the navy of the city state of Rhodes, who were allied with the Roman Republic. The Seleucids were led by the famous Carthaginian general Hannibal, who had gone into exile in the events following the Battle of Zama. The experienced Rhodian fleet was victorious, and Hannibal's fleet was forced to flee.
