The Battle of Mount Vesuvius was the first battle of the Third Servile War, between Spartacus and his small rebel army against Claudius Glaber and the 3000 legionares under his command.

The battle was most likely at night time; because of Spartacus' Thracian mindset, night provided the perfect stage for an attack.


Glaber was able to make Spartacus and his army retreat up towards mount vesuvius, and blocked their only way down.

Claudius Glaber is killed, along with many of his soldiers
