Eunus was a syrian slave who revolted against the Romans and began the First Servile War. he led his slave army along with Cleon




historical informationEdit

Little is known about Eunus's actual participation in the war. Only his enemies left accounts of him, and they gave credit for his victories to his general, a Cilician named Cleon. But Eunus must have been a man of considerable ability to have maintained his leadership position throughout the war and to have commanded the services of those said to have been his superiors. Cleon fell in battle, and Eunus was captured, but he died before he could be punished.
