A breached agreement between the Frisians, Batavians and the Romans caused the Frisians and Batavians to revolt. In answer, the Roman army commander and senator Apronius travelled to Friesland. The wall chart displays the battle scene. The wall chart itself states 28 BC, the manual however states this ought to be 28 AD.
