Confrontation at Jaxartes[edit]

I'm wondering, does anyone have information regarding a curious battle: a confrontation at the river Jaxartes in Parthia of Roman and Chinese expeditionary forces, the only such clash in history? It was in the middle of the II century AD, I think, and as far as I remember, the Chinese were victorious.


Yes, I heard about it, although I think there are differnt version on whom was victorious. As far as I know the remnant of Crassus campaign against Parthia, all POW at that time were made military units to fight in the East and encountered the Chinese (whose empire went far more west at these times into the Fergana valley). This is no battle of the Roman military as they were Parthian troops fighting the Chinese. Ask the Chinese military history task force more about it. Wandalstouring 22:56, 10 November 2006 (UTC)

grouping by wars[edit]

while in articles we usually have battles grouped by wars or camapigns we should also indicate to which chain of events these belonged here. Wandalstouring 22:57, 10 November 2006 (UTC)

I disagree, I think grouping by date on this list, and then grouping by war on the article is a good format. However, I do think we could adjust the format of this list, see my topic below. Andersao (talk) 03:20, 22 December 2010 (UTC)

Campaign in Judea[edit]

Why, in AD 69, is the defeat of Jewish rebels that led to the destruction of the Temple not mentioned? I recall a certain Titus building his reputation on that campaign, as well as the Roman mint striking coins commemorating the defeat and renaming of the region to Palestinia. Is this inconvenient? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 04:15, 5 September 2008 (UTC)

Creating new list for sieges and naval battles?[edit]

I think it might be useful to seperate Roman battles from Roman sieges, and possibly even those from Roman naval battles. So, instead of one long list of Roman battles, we could shorten it, and have three three lists: Roman battles, Roman sieges, and Roman naval battles. What do people think? Or perhaps a better question, do people think anyone would be willing to do the extensive editing of this page and the creation of two new lists that this proposition involves?

Greek Battles[edit]

Why are there some greek battles with out any roman involvement? I want to get rid of them but I feel like I should not just delete them — Preceding unsigned comment added by ImVeryAwesome (talkcontribs) 00:07, 29 January 2014 (UTC)
