Historical background


UNITED PARTHIAN - Vologeses IV

(147-191)

Vologeses IV, which appears to be the son of Mithridates IV, succeeded Vologeses III 147. The beginning of his kingdom was happy. Vologeses IV invades Armenia and part of Syria in 162. War broke out between the Romans and Parthians. Marcus Aurelius Lucius Verus sent in the East with a very important military command. Lucius Verus reconquered Armenia and invaded Mesopotamia. Co-emperor seized Seleucia and Ctesiphon and ravaged Parthia. Marcus Aurelius and Lucius Verus received the title of "armeniacus" and then "Parthicus Maximus." The power and prestige of Arsacides is found in altered. Vologeses IV abandoned its claims to Armenia in 166 and did not live long enough to see a new take Ctesiphon in 198.
