The Battle:
Constantinople
Attila renewed his invasion of the Eastern Empire after destroying Sirmium in 441, capturing Naissus (Nis), Serdica (Sofia) and Arcadiopolis, then advancing on Constantinople, defended by Flavius Zeno. Outside the city, he defeated the Imperial army under Aspar the Alan and the Germans Areobindus and Arnegisclus, but lacked resources for a siege and pursued the Roman army to the Chersonesus.
