The Battle of Magnesia was the concluding battle of the Roman–Syrian War, fought in 190 BC near Magnesia ad Sipylum on the plains of Lydia between Romans, led by the consul Lucius Cornelius Scipio and his brother, the famed general Scipio Africanus, with their ally Eumenes II of Pergamum, and the army of Antiochus III the Great of the Seleucid Empire. A decisive Roman victory resulted in Roman domination over the internal affairs of a large part of the territory once controlled by the Seleucid Empire. [Wikipedia] The battle could have been won by Antiochus III the Great, but he made a fatal mistake personally leading his elite heavy cavalry against left wing of Romans what caused his lost of possibility to keep controlling whole situation at the battlefield.
