The Phrygian campaign was the conquest of Phrygia by the forces of Alexander the Great in 334 BCE.

War

A first attack was destroyed because the Persian cavalry swarmed the Greek lines, but a second attack destroyed the worn-down Persian army, and the Persian army was defeated, with Phrygia falling to Alexander.
