Alexander's Sarmatian Campaign refers to a series of military actions committed against the Sarmatians by Alexander the Great in 325 BC. It ended with the subjugation of Sarmatia via military conquest.

War

Alexander and a professional Greek army invaded Sarmatia, facing mainly cavalrymen from the steppe that were recruited by the Sarmatians. The Greek Companion Cavalry, elite horseback lancers, charged the Sarmatian barbarians, and it seemed as if they were invincible, taking down the whole of the Sarmatian army and conquering the land.
