Although the best general of the Roman Emperor Justinian Belisarius earned a significant victory over the Sassanids during the battle of Dara in 530, the restoration of the Empire was just starting. Empires western lands were under Germanic control, and Justinian was eager to get them back. He sent Belisarius to Africa to deal with the Vandals. Two battles – Ad Decimum and Tricamarum were central in this campaign.
