Battle of Cannae ( 216 BC ) archeological site

The Battle of Cannae was a major battle of the Second Punic War.

An estimated 60,000–70,000 Romans were killed or captured at Cannae (including the consul Lucius Aemilius Paullus and eighty Roman senators). In terms of the number of lives lost in a single day, Cannae is estimated to be within the thirty costliest battles in all of recorded human history
