    I've seen that image before, either from Desperta Ferro which is a Spanish publisher, or from a similar Italian magazine.
    My initial impression is that it was the battle against Titus Labienus at Ruspina. It could be anything, but I saw it listed both as the Battle of Zela and the Battle of Munda in different places. Because Caesar is rallying his troops I would be inclined to say that this took place during Munda.

    I think the pic is Munda. Akar probably thinks it's Alesia or something.

    I'll take the rep for guessing Zela but... I'm pretty sure it is supposed to be Munda. In which case give me rep again for pointing it out.

    Google told me it was Zela, which is what I was hoping to find a picture of.

    I can't rep you since I repped you on someone else's behalf before.

    I do think it is Munda, I could be wrong. But I think whoever guessed Munda should go next. If that someone doesn't post then I will post one tomorrow.

    Then you should post a pic.

    Yeah, pretty straight forward.

    Not in the British Isles, though one of the participants is involved in both
