|Battle of Nuceria|
|previous battle||Battle of Picentia|
|following battle||Siege of Atella|
The battle lasted an entire day. There were heavy losses for the Roman side. As the battle continued, the morale of Cossinius' men weakened. The Roman forces only held out from survival, not confidence. Spartacus managed to break through several Roman formations, and eventually made his way to Cossinius and Furius' position. Knowing the battle was in Spartacus' favour, the two commanders fled, with their troops retreating behind them.
- Rebel victory.
- Majority of Cossinius' soldier killed.
