The Dacian Campaign was the conquest of Dacia by Alexander the Great in 334 BC.

War

Alexander the Great, acting upon the advice of Parmenion, attacked the Kingdom of Dacia, led by King Cothelas. The Greek cavalry overran the Dacian infantry and their spearmen and Hypaspists held off the cavalry, and although many Greeks died, they took over lots of land and looted tons of gold.
