(And they drank one more before they left.)

The manufacturer’s title reference is almost certainly to the Battle of Teutoburg Forest (9 A.D.), a recurring theme in the art of Peter Dümler. The battle was a major defeat for the Roman Empire, resulting the the annihilation of three Roman legions and permanently halting Roman expansion into territories east of the Rhine River.
