The Romans sent a unit of three thousand men under the command of Gaius Claudius Glabro. Contrary to military doctrine, and underestimating the slaves, Claudius Glabro established his camp at the foot of the mountain, where the only path from the top descended, without establishing a protective fence. Learning of this fact, Spartacus adopted a brilliant plan. His men descended the steepest part of the volcano tied by ropes to the stump of a wild vine and fell by surprise on the Roman soldiers, causing heavy casualties and forcing the survivors. to flee, leaving the camp, provisions, horses and weapons at the hands of the slaves. It was the first great victory of Spartacus, in what was later called the Battle of Vesuvius.
