Warfare in September

Ad Decimum  533

Vandal War in Africa


The celebrated Byzantine General Belisarius was ordered by Emperor Justinian to reconquer North Africa from the Vandals and met Ammatus,
brother of King Gelimer, in battle outside Carthage at Ad Decimum. Ammatus was heavily defeated when he launched his force on a premature
charge and the Romans retook the city two days later (13 September 533).
