ABSTRACT
The article focuses on Cynoscephalae, the first battle in the campaign of Roman imperialism against Macedonia and the eastern Mediterranean. It was also the first clash of the Greek spear phalanx and the Roman sword legion. In the spring of 197 BC, a Greek army under Philip V of Macedon and a Roman army commanded by Tirus Quinctius Flamininus closed on one another in Greece. One of the Greek unit commanders chased the Roman cavalry from the ridge and reported to Philip that the whole Roman army was in retreat.
