As reported in my previous post, I ran the Carrhae game (with Command & Colours) twice on Monday. In contrast to the Parthian walkover the previous Wednesday, the Romans had the better of both games, winning 7-2 and 7-3. Phil Steele led the Romans in both games, aided by Graham Evans in the first. Graham defected to the Parthians for the second game, joining Chris Ager.

|The first game draws to a close - most of the Parthian light cavalry has run off...|
