In 135 B.C., the First Servile War began. After the Second Punic war, an over-abundance of slaves caused them to be ill-fed by their masters, and they soon began to provide for themselves by robbery. Several decades of increasing tension finally broke out into war. The rebel leader was Eunus, a slave whose master had hired him out as a magician for parties. Eunus would humorously tell his audiences that he was a prophet, that someday he would be king, the classes would be reversed, and aristocrats would killed or enslaved - except for those that tipped him for the show. During the revolt he did spare the lives of at least some aristocrats who had tipped him. The war lasted until 132 B.C. Eunus was captured, but he died before he could be punished. This was the first of three slave revolts against the Roman Republic; the last and the most famous was led by Spartacus.

In 178 B.C., one of Perseus' first acts on becoming king of Macedonia was to renew the treaty with Rome. He then began building up the Macedonian army and seeking alliances with the Greek leagues, with his northern barbarian neighbors, and with the Seleucid king Seleucus IV. In 172, Eumenes II of Pergamum traveled to Rome to warn the Roman Senate of the danger from Perseus. On his return home, Eumenes II was nearly killed at Delphi and Perseus was the suspected instigator. In 171, Rome declared war. Epirus allied with Macedonia, but the Greek leagues remained neutral.
