Conflict with Rome[ edit ] Although the Carpi are recorded as resident in the Dacian region from at least the 's onwards, they are not mentioned in Roman accounts of several campaigns in the Dacian region in the second century.
For example, in Rome's vast and protracted conflict with the trans-danubian tribes, known as the Marcomannic Warsduring which Dacia province suffered at least two major invasions, only their neighbours the Costoboci are mentioned specifically.
A well-known example is the Goths. These were probably recorded by the Roman historian Tacitusunder the name Hist 103 paper 1, as inhabiting the area East of the Vistula river in central Poland in AD However, the role of the Carpi in the coalition's incursions is not always clear, as the most comprehensive account, that of the 6th-century chronicler Zosimusis chronologically confused and often denotes the participants under the vague term "Scythians" meaning inhabitants of the geographical region called Scythia i.
Supporters of a Dacian ethnicity for the Carpi have tended to assume that they participated in campaigns where Roman emperors claimed the title Dacicus Maximus, in addition to those resulting in a Carpicus Maximus acclamation. But all incursions in which the Carpi are specifically reported by ancient sources were into Moesia Inferior, not Dacia.
Carpi attacks on the Danubian frontier — [ edit ] Silver Antoninianus coin issued by the Roman emperor Philip the Arab to commemorate his victory over the Carpi in AD Head of Philip wearing diadem, with legend: Figure of winged goddess Victory bearing palm and laurel wreath, with legend: The Carpi launched their first recorded major incursion into Roman territory south of the Danube, during the brief joint rule of the adolescent Gordian III and the senators Balbinus and Pupienus Maximus.
However, the governor succeeded in driving out the Carpi in After the theatre governors failed to repel the invasion, the emperor took personal command and launched a major counter-attack.
After a prolonged struggle, the Carpi were driven back across the Danube. Pursued by the Romans into their homeland, the main body of Carpi took refuge in a major stronghold presumably a hillfortwhere they were surrounded and besieged by Philip's forces. The remaining Carpi forces, which had scattered, rallied and launched an attempt to relieve the siege.
The besieged staged a mass sortie to distract the Romans' attention from the approach of the relief-force. But the latter were intercepted and routed by Philip's equites Maurorum Berber light cavalry from N. The breakout itself was contained, forcing the Carpi to sue for peace.
This was granted to them on apparently lenient terms by Philip, who was eager to conclude the campaign in time for the forthcoming celebrations of the 1,th anniversary of the City of Rome's foundation April The reconstruction is only tentative, however, as the ancient chroniclers' accounts are fragmentary and confused The Carpi participated in a massive transdanubian invasion of Moesia and Thrace under the leadership of the Gothic king Kniva.
Kniva's horde apparently included Goths, Taifali and Vandalsas well as some renegade Roman army veterans. In addition, an apparently separate force of Goths and Bastarnae also entered Moesia Inferior, led by Kniva's two top lieutenants.
Jordanes claims that the barbarians totaledmen, but Byzantine chroniclers often grossly inflate barbarian numbers, typically by a factor of ten e. Zosimus' claim that 60, Alamanni fell at the Battle of Strasbourg inagainst the 6, recorded by the contemporary and more reliable Ammianus Marcellinus.
The Carpi contingent numbered 3, men, according to Jordanes. It appears that, for the purpose of dealing with the threat, Gallus was given command of forces in the frontier forts along the Danube, while the emperor commanded a mobile force of crack units. After losing two encounters with the Romans in Moesia Inferior, Kniva surprised the emperor by unobservedly crossing the Haemus Balkan mountains into Thraciawhich was largely undefended.
The emperor, who was left several days' march behind, was obliged to rush his army into Thracia by forced marches. At Beroe Stara Zagora, BulgariaKniva launched a surprise attack on the emperor's exhausted army, inflicting a major defeat. Decius was obliged to withdraw the remnants of his shattered force to Moesia Inferior and to leave Thracia to be pillaged at will by the barbarians.
In the meantime, Decius rebuilt his field army in Moesia Inferior. Inas the barbarian army headed home towards the Danube, laden with a vast quantity of plunder, they were intercepted by the emperor at Abrittus in Moesia Inferior.
In a hard-fought battle, Kniva's main force was routed. The emperor then led his men across a bog in order to engage Kniva's reserve force, which guarded the barbarians' booty. But the emperor had underestimated the difficulty of the terrain: The latter concluded a peace with the Goths, which permitted them to return home with their booty intact and guaranteed resumed subsidies.As of December 31, , I retired from full-time teaching in Humboldt State University's Department of ph-vs.com this website will remain online, it is no longer maintained.
