This happened 1,483 years ago today.
Though not as impressive as his epic victories at Daras or Tricamarum or his capture of Gothic Ravenna, Belisarius's defeat of this mutiny with a mere handful of men counts as one of his most daring and heroic exploits.

I have to admit being mostly ignorant of Belisarius and Justinian. The little I learned was when I was in the Army stationed just outside Istanbul, and from reading historical fiction.
There was a good alternative history science fiction series that had Belisarius in it. Eric Flint was one of the authors. I think Pournelle may have been another. There was one more but his name escapes me.
If you know of any good books on Belisarius let me know.
