    Pacorus and his family and friends travel to the east to attend the wedding of Princess Isabella, but old scores need to be settled and a new power is rising beyond the Indus that will threaten the empire itself. Simultaneously, Parthian forces began attacking key Roman positions; at the same time the Roman garrisons at SeleuciaNisibis and Edessa had been attacked and evicted by the local populaces. An enormous amount of treasure was carried off from the city. As can be seen from the modern works on the subject, we have a considerable number of Parthian coins which survive and they can help us reconstruct the outline of a number of events, notably those surrounding the reigns of the various Parthian kings. The feudal structure of the Parthian empire may have limited its ability to project large armies against Rome. He then turned his attention to Parthia once again.

    The Roman general Quintus Labienus, who had supported the murderers and feared Caesar's heirs Mark Antony and Octavian, sided with the Parthians and turned out to be the best general of king Pacorus I. A battle was fought in the hilly grounds of Cyrrhestica. Trajan ignored these offers for peace and continued with his plans. The news arrived at Rome in great embarrassment.

    In the years that followed, their kings recognized the Seleucid kings as their superiors. He then dispatched his generals who recaptured the region. The situation is complicated by turmoil in Parthia, where the country was stuck by rapid succession of kings. It was, and still is, one of my favourite films. Once again, at least for another half century, Rome was to avoid active intervention east of the Euphrates. The border between the two empires fell back to the Euphrates.
