Battle of Fano
|Battle of Fano|
|Part of the Roman-Germanic wars|
|Commanders and leaders|
Finally, the Roman Army caught and forced a fight with the Juthungi on the Metaurus River, just inland of Fano. The crucial moment of the battle was when the Juthungi were pinned against the river, so that, when the Germanic line was forced to give way, many Juthungi fell into the river and drowned.
