  • Successes by Rome's armies force the Samnites to ask for peace. The terms are harsh so peace does not happen.
  • Two Roman consuls, Spurius Postumius Albinus and Titus Veturius Calvinus, lead a force into Samnium. They are trapped in a mountain pass known as the Caudine Forks. They make a five-year treaty with the Samnites.
