The Battle of the Gulf of Corinth was a battle which took place on a bridge over the Gulf of Corinth, in a location within 200 meters of the real life Rio-Antirrio bridge.

The New Greek Empire had retaken the western, southern, and eastern Achaean Provinces, and was mobilizing towards the northern Achaean province, prompting the Romans to attempt to cross a large bridge into the Phocis province.

The Roman Navy attempted to clear out nearby Greek ships, resulting in a naval battle near the bridge, prompting the Greeks to fire flaming arrows and bolts into the Roman sails. The Romans attempted to charge the bridge using superior numbers, but a Hoplite phalanx armed with steel spears proved to be exceedingly effective on the narrow bridge.

The Romans attempted a final offensive with handcannoners, but the Greek ships deployed cannonfire against them, driving them back into the northern Achaean province, and into a Greek Hypaspist unit, to which the Romans surrendered.
