Hairy Pagan Blokes' Sauna Sunday* (Women allowed)

This week's sauna commemorates the tragic Pagan loss in the the Battle of the Frigidus, (also called the Battle of the Frigid River,) was fought between September 5–6 394, between the army of the Eastern Emperor Theodosius I and the army of Western Roman ruler Eugenius.

The Battle of the Frigidus

The unfortunate defeat of Eugenius and his commander, the Frankish magister militum Arbogast, (you have gotta luv a bloke with the name Arboghast) put the whole empire back in the hands of a single emperor for the last time in Roman history. Most significantly, the battle was the last attempt to contest the Christianization of the empire; its outcome decided the fate of Christianity in the western Empire.
