The Battle of Picenum were two battles in the Third Servile War between Spartacus and his rebels against the remainder of Lentulus' and Publicola's legions.


During the battle, Lentulus called for reinforcements, but the rebels caused heavy losses before reinforcements could arrive. Lentulus would have expected the reinforcements to defeat the rebels going up hill, but this did not happen.

The rebels overpowered and defeated the reinforcements. Once again, Spartacus had won.
