Sample text

Phocas decided to gamble on a Heraclian landing near the Land Walls and sent his brother, Domentziolus, with the majority of the forces available to him to guard against such an eventuality. However, this gamble did not pay off as Heraclius landed his vanguard at Hebdomon, a town named for the fact that it was at the seventh milestone from Constantinople, on 3 October 610. There may have been something symbolic about Heraclius’ choice of Hebdomon besides its strategic position, for it was one of the main training bases of the Thracian field army and several Roman emperors had been elected through acclamation there, including Valens, Arcadius, Honorius, Theodosius II and perhaps even Phocas himself.

19 Whatever the route, Heraclius’ forces penetrated the Dardanelle Straits sometime in late September 610. The failure of Phocas and his admirals to engage Heraclius before he reached the Sea of Marmara is curious. However, perhaps this is where Nicetas’ invasion of Egypt bore strategic fruit for Heraclius as it may have diverted the naval forces of Phocas to the Eastern Mediterranean and the strategy may even have bolstered Heraclius’ strength with the capture of parts of the Egyptian fleet, or at least denied them to Phocas.

Defeated before the walls of Alexandria, Bonosus had to fall back into the Nile Delta, where his depredations had reduced the resources available to him and made the Egyptian populace hostile. This forced the Phocan loyalists to retreat from Egypt altogether while Bonosus himself took ship from Pelusium for Constantinople in early 610 to report to Phocas that Egypt and its vital supplies of wealth and crops had been lost. This was a great victory for the Heraclii and a major step in the overthrow of Phocas but, for the Roman Empire itself, Nicetas’ conquest of Egypt contained many worrying signs.
