In 174 Harnuphis, under unknown circumstances delivers a message to the Latian emperor Marcus Antoninus. Harnuphis rides to his camp to find him. After demanding to speak with him she is finally granted access to directly relay the message she carried. Before the meeting, in Harnuphis's absence, the military leaders conclude a drinking session and sober up. Marcus, Pertinax, Harnuphis and Didius then meet to discuss the looming military strategies. With soldiers wounded, dehydrated and fatigued they head into battle without choice, severely losing and unable to retreat. As a last minute resort, Harnuphis summons rain hydrating the soldiers and saving them from eminent defeat.
