Game 1 of 3: Byzantine win 6 banners to 5
Rapid Sassanid I fantry advance to gain the high ground, however cavalry on Sassanid right flank were surprisingly destroyed.

Belasariua moved heavy units up and personally led the Cataphract charge that destroyed the Sassanid heavy cavalry... at which point the heavier units in the hills started to reduce the Sassanid light infantry.

With no left flank and a buckling centre, Gadar took to the field sweeping all before him and his Cataphracts, including the Byzantine heavy xavalry and killing their general.

Just when it seemed victory had been snatched from defeat the Byzantine centre, lead by the Heavy infantry broke through the Sassanid centre claiming the winning banner.

Game 2 of 3: Sassanids win 6 banners to 1
Absolutely nothing went right for the Byzantines, totally outgunned in command... the Sassanids claimed the high ground, the cavalry drove through the Byzantine left flank, destroying the Heavy Cavalry and killing the General.

Despite map gains by the Byzantines they were chasing dust as the Sassanid cavalry effectively picked off the heavier Byzantine units with ranged fire.

Massive losses inflicted on Byzantine army after the Sassanid cataphracts rallied and caused the final collapse of the Byzantine left flank.

Game 3 of 3: Byzantine win 6 banners to 2
Both sides were cautious Initially, relying on ranged attacks but with only limited success.

A series of mounted charges by the Byzantines broke the stalemate and forced in first the Sassanid centre, then the Byzantine heavy cavalry on the left flank were released and caused great carnage, ultimately chasing the enemy general Gadar from the field.

Otherwise the other Sassanid generals tried their best to attack, successfully destroying the Byzantine cataphracts, but Belisarious was able to lead his medium cavalry to victory in the centre, killing a Sassanid general in the process.
