The Battle of Dobruja took place in 339 BC on the Plains of Dobruja in Scythia between the armies of King Philip II of Macedon and King Ateas of Scythia. The war started when the Scythians refused to assist the Macedonians in their siege of Byzantium, a city of Thrace, and Philip led an army to meet the Scythians, resulting in the death of Ateas. Philip II was also wounded, his horse killed underneath him. Afterwards, the Scythians bowed down to Macedonian power.
