Sack of Rome, 390 BC

By Clayton Hinson and Joseph Newman

After the battle of Allia...

A Gaul tribe known as the Senones proceeded to sack the city of Rome and the Capitoline Hill. They stole many goods and burned many shelters to the ground.

Important factors in the battle!

Significance of the geese

The geese were seen as a sign of Juno, queen of the gods. She got much praise after "helping" the Romans push back the Gauls.

While Manlius Capitolinus was successful at pushing back the threat, this did not mean that he could hold them back much longer. The Romans had to pay the Gauls to leave the area.

This left Rome devastated.
