Historical background


ROMAN REPUBLIC - ANONYMOUS

(194-190 BC)

The years that followed the end of the second Punic war are sometimes unclear. They are marked by the conflict between Rome Antiochus III the Great, king of Syria (223-187 AC.) And Philip V of Macedon. Antiochus suffered several setbacks in Greece at Thermopylae and sea Corcyra before being crushed at Magnesia (190 AC.). The war is spreading to the whole of the East. Italy, after their victory over the Boii, Piacenza and Cremona were repopulated by Roman settlers. In 189 BC, the Roman colony of Bononia (Bologna) is based.
