> Syrian Arab Queen Mavia (or Mawia) led her Saracen troops in a rebellion against
> Rome. Between 373 and 380 A.D. she led them into
> battles in Palestine, Phoenicia and Egypt.
>
> After confronting her in a battle in Phoenicia, a general of the Roman army
> requested assistance from the supreme commander of the
> eastern Roman army. Despite this, Mavia continued winning battle after battle
> until the Roman army retreated from her domain.
>
> The Romans remembered the effectiveness of her forces, and when they were later
> attacked by Goths, they requested Mavia's
> assistance. She complied by sending a fleet of her cavalry.
