Example text

But in the fog of battle, Cassius mistakenly believed Brutus’s forces had been crushed, dooming their side to defeat. Rather than face certain execution, he committed suicide. When battle was resumed, Antony made good Octavian’s earlier setback and went on to rout the remaining forces of Caesar’s assassins. Faced with either surrendering or killing himself, Brutus joined Cassius in choosing the latter solution. Octavian and Antony emerged from Philippi in virtually undisputed command of Rome’s empire.

He recruited “no small army, both of strangers and of his own countrymen” to begin his campaign to remove Antigonus from the throne in Jerusalem and perch upon it himself. He marched his forces into Galilee, not far from where he had made landfall, to recruit more fighters and prepare for his operations. But he immediately had to contend with a preexisting problem. Under renewed Roman pressure, the Parthian invaders were proving a less formidable adversary in Judaea than they had earlier been. But hostility to Rome’s dominance, and to Herod personally, among his prospective subjects remained implacable.

Once more, a new master appeared on the scene, and he had to earn his favor. At Philippi in Greece, the Roman civil war sparked by Julius Caesar’s assassination was brought to a violent conclusion. The forces of Octavian and Mark Antony caught up with the legions gathered there by Brutus and Cassius. Poorly led, Octavian’s troops were routed by Brutus’s, and he was forced to hide in a swamp to avoid capture. But in the fog of battle, Cassius mistakenly believed Brutus’s forces had been crushed, dooming their side to defeat.
