The Battle of Caudine Forks was a battle fought during the Second Samnite War.

Battle

A Roman army led by consuls Titus Veturius Calvinus and Spurius Postumius Albinus was ambushed in an Apennine pass by Gaius Pontus, with a large army of Samnites. Sealing both ends of the pass with felled trees, the Samnites rained missiles on the trapped Romans from above until they surrendered.
