Issus, November 333 B.C. Issus was the closest Alexander came to defeat, even though he would go on to face a larger Persian army at Arbela two years later. Metaurus, 207 B.C. During the Second Punic War, Hasdrubal arrived in Italy to reinforce his brother Hannibal. While the two brothers were separated, Roman Counsel Nero sought to defeat Hasdrubal's force by marching his best troops 250 miles north to join the attack against Hasdrubal. Carrhae, 53 B.C. Roman legions under Crassius were marching to retake Syria when Parthian forces under Surenas surprised them shortly after crossing the Euphrates.
