Cincinnatus left Rome the following morning with his newly made army and he reached the besiege site of the Aequi by nightfall.
ON TO VICTORY WE GO!!!!
Instead of hiding and launching a surprise attack, Cincinnatus and his army roared to notify the besieged part of the army that they are present and to intimidate the Aequi.
The Aequi could not flee because they were surrounded, but Cincinnatus used a day to construct a wall surrounding the Aequi so they could not escape during battle.
At last it was finally time for Cincinnatus to launch an attack against the Aequi, who were also attacked on the other side by the half of the army that was trapped.
The Aequi, now themselves being besieged on both sides, were crushed by Cincinnatus within a few hours of the start of the battle.
Cincinnatus did not execute the remainder of the Aequi who surrendered. What he did do however, is that he let the Aequi walk under a yoke of spears, which was of utter humiliation to them.
We feel so bad, we wish we would have been killed
