Battle of Léman


Marc Charles Gabriel GLEYRE (1806-1874)
"The Helvetians Pass the Romans under the Yoke" (1858)

(from an old lithograph of original oil at Lausanne)

Historians tell us the battle has in fact nothing to do with Vaud. The Helvetians prevailed against the Roman Consul Cassius in the "Battle of Léman" at Agen, France in 107 B.C.
