The article focuses on the war between the Roman army and the Gallic infantry. Fruitless invasions by Boii, a Gallic tribe had led to a prolonged peace with Rome. The Roman army must have been large, for the Gauls decided to avoid open battle and turned instead to a clever ploy. The cavalry remained beside its campfires, while under cover of darkness the infantry secretly retreated near the town of Faesulae.
