This time we will move to the battle without much ado. This bout took place in the same terrain as the last one (Thessaly) because the Byzantines returned with reinforcements after the Egyptians decided to stay and replenish their casualties. In fact, the latter could spare extra points and hire two merc elements (crusader bows). The sides are the same as in the last battle for the two armies, with the greeks attacking this time.
High noon and Palaiologos deploys his strongest cavalry on the left, his varangians (Bd) and a bow, with the light horse units behind, in the center and a unit of skutatoi (Sp) with bows on the right. The general is riding next to his varangians.
The byzantines are on the move. Their cavalry gallops forth on the left, while the arabs are still crossing the (difficult) river. The greek slow infantry is left behind with Palaiologos himself.
Great danger for the egyptians! They are still crossing while the greeks are ready to smash on them with their kavallarioi (Cv) and pachenegs (Lh). On the other side of the battlefield the lines have barely moved.
