Vittoria Vandali 6-2. Giovanni supera il ruscello e crea una linea al centro con la sua cavalleria. Solomon riceve l'ordine di fare lo stesso ma obliquamente per appoggiare Giovanni. Prima che ciò accada Tzazon carica con tutte le sue unità portando a casa tre vittorie. Il panico serpeggia tra i bizantini e Belisario si getta nella mischia. Ma è troppo tardi. Nel centro Giovanni perde la vita in un'imboscata e Solomon viene annientato giusto quando cercava di portare aiuto.

The Moors should not be armed with bows. They fought with javelins and shields. The Vandals fought only with sword and spear. This is according to the descriptions provided by the historian Procopius, who served with the Byzantines during the Vandalic wars. The Huns fought with bows. They had served the Byzantines well, but were reported to be mutinous at the time of this battle, and so were sent off to the right flank where they may have provided a diversion to keep the Vandal left wing frozen in place. It is a great mystery why the Vandals, charging lance armed cavalry, did not simply attack across the front and overwhelm the Byzantine cavalry.
