THE BATTLE OF ACTIUM 31 BC: War for the World
Possibly the most important battle in Roman history, Actium drew the final curtain on the Roman republic and ushered in the Roman Empire. The naval forces of Octavian clashed with those of Antony and Cleopatra off the coast of western Greece. Octavian's victory set the stage for the 44-year Augustan Peace, which engendered the dawn of the Roman Empire.
