Historical background


Parthia - UNITED PARTHIAN - PARTHAMASPATÈS

(116)

Parthamaspatès pretended son of Osroes I. When Trajan had taken Ctesiphon he installed as king. This fact is known to us by Roman coins with the caption: "PARTHIIS DATVS REX", which can result in (king gave the Parthians). After the departure of the Roman occupiers, it was quickly driven from the throne and then disappears from history.
