Battle of Melia Ridge: ~ a later battle of the Third Servile War. Crassus had spent months constructing a 35 mile defensive line of fortifications. Engineering a series of deep, stake filled trenches and bulwark, taking full advantage of the natural features- of the already difficult to pass Aspromonte mountain range that cuts across the instep of Italy- Crassus created what he referred to his ‘Tuna Trap,’ so called for the way it’s ever narrowing path was designed to herd Spartacus’ army onto the only half-mile wide Melia Ridge where, strategically, the only road north of the ridge Crassus also fortified with a deep, heavily defended trench. Crassus had effectively trapped the Thracian between the Devil- himself!- and those uncross-able Straits of Messina. Crassus wanted to starve out Spartacus’ army. However, Spartacus and his men ultimately filled the trenches with slave dead, allowing the rest of the Spartacans to race across the bodies of their dead comrades on foot and even on horseback. It was an important victory for the rebels when the Roman’s walls were breeched albeit at a high price: only one-third of Spartacus’ army survived the breakout from the Melia Ridge entrapment. [x]
