Phraates sent then an embassy to protest resources in case of an armed conflict in Armenia. Thus, Plutarch indicates how after having received Orobazes, Parthian The success of the change in strategy was reflected in the ambassador, he humiliated him publicly putting him at the same pact agreed by Augustus and the Parthian king Phraates diplomatic level as Ariobarzanes, king of Capadocia, a small allied state of Rome. An attitude that provoked critical IV in 20 BC. Augustus recovered the military standards comments for his arrogance and that cost the life of the lost in the campaigns of Crassus and Anthony, as well as ambassador, executed by his monarch on his return to Parthia for having allowed such humiliation.
For an analysis of this episode: Lerouge , 45 — Lerouge , 43 — 93; Sherwin—White , et seq. For more details on the Euphrates as limit between Rome and Parthia, vid. Facella ; Sommer It was a great Armenia had already revealed itself as strategically diplomatic success, which Augustus divulged as a victory important, and both Lucullus and Pompey were driven to and sign of the submission of Parthia to Roman will. The intervene in the area against the powerful Armenian king conditions imposed in the pact and the subsequent Tigranes II.
Nevertheless it was only after the 1st C AD propaganda conveniently coincided with a moment of that Armenia became the main battle field. In this regard, internal weakness and dynastic crisis affecting the Rome was always fully aware of the need to hold Parthian throne Lerouge , — This elements of influence and power over Armenia, as a situation was increased when Phraates IV sent on his own counter—weight to the traditional Arsacid influence in the initiative his nine sons and grandsons as hostages — one territory Cizek , In fact, from this point was later claimed by the Parthians during another dynastic onwards, Rome directed its foreign policy in Armenia crisis between AD 6—9.
At a first glance it would seem according to three possible main lines of action: that with Augustus Rome did impose certain superiority over Parthia, at least at a symbolic level, expressed in the — Military conquest and submission of Armenia. In reality, the — Real sovereignty through the imposition of a roman situation was not what it seemed. This was certainly not a situation that Nevertheless there is one aspect of this entire situation agreed with the Parthian monarchs, generating constant that is really interesting for us and it is when Rome instability and conflict in the area.
The first great moment imposed a monarch on a foreign throne to serve its of crisis took place under Tiberius and Artabanus III, interests. The measure was popular among Roman emperors imposing his own son. The ensuing conflict ended in the and became one of the main instruments of political negotiation between Vitellius and Artabanus and the propaganda, displayed on architecture, sculpture, and restoration of peace conditions Bivar , 73 — 76; especially on coins In our case, it is related to the Lerouge , Thus, after the pacts signed by the princeps, throne, a clear indication that the conflict was far from armed conflict between Romans and Parthians was resolved.
For Rome the Parthian question remained a abandoned for a time. However frictions between the two priority. In spite of the fact that armed conflict was powers were shifted to another territory that would avoided, the aim was to constantly promote internal strife concentrate most of the military activity of the following in the Parthian kingdom, as seen in the actions of Tiberius century, becoming a real hotspot in the east: Armenia.
It and Claudius, who in different occasions supported the was a strategically positioned kingdom that acted as a causes of royal hostages in Rome attempting to take over buffer state, separating Rome and Parthia between the the Parthian throne Lerouge , This was the areas of the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea, which historical context that framed the Roman—Parthian War controlled direct passage both to Asia Minor and Syria that would take place after Vologases I rose to the Roman territories and to Media Parthian territory.
In Parthian throne in AD Nero vs Vologases: the Roman—Parthian War for 17 Maybe the most famous example of this propaganda would be Armenia the system of symbols associated to the August of Prima Porta statue, where appears the image of the defeated Parthian, giving With Vologases begins a period of consolidation and the standards to the Roman emperor. On this symbols and its development of Parthian power after years of internal interpretation problems, vid. This monarch attempted to recover the past glory of 18 In fact, contemporary authors like Strabo, Pompey Trogue or the Parthian kingdom, based on three objectives: Velleius keep referring in its writings to Rome and Parthia as the biggest empires of the world, therefore showing that it did not — Iranization of the state, reflected, for example, in the exist an image of Roman superiority on Parthia: Lerouge , As previously — Internal stabilization to put an end to the chronic mentioned, when Nero came into power, he was dynastic problems that had affected Parthia in the last confronted by the forwardness of Vologases I, who had decades.
To achieve this, Vologases placed his brothers imposed his own candidate, Tiridates, on the Armenian Pacorus and Tiridates on the Median and Armenian throne, clearly breaching the agreement reached with thrones respectively Wolski , Nero was therefore obliged to also launch an offensive campaign in the area, which initiated the — Aggressive foreign policy in Armenia, where Roman—Parthian War of AD 54— The emperor Vologases imposed his brother on the throne, breaking decided to reinforce the position of his vassal states, with the existing agreements with Rome Wolski , placing several pro—Roman monarchs on the thrones of Once in power, Vologases attempted to hostages, while putting his armies in the hands of a impose his brother Tiridates on the Armenian throne and reputed general, Corbulo, who had already served to that effect invaded the region.
He expelled Radamist, Claudius. The sources detail how the general trained his who in turn had deposed Mithridates and managed to be legions harshly, although during the first part of the war accepted by Rome. After a series of military actions, AD 55—56 he avoided armed conflict, preferring to Tiridates finally defeated Radamist and imposed himself negotiate with Tiridates in Armenia, a tactic which would as king, a situation which greeted Nero at the beginning prove to be the predominant strategy throughout the war.
Although the Parthians withdrew for a time, peace negotiations were not fruitful, and in AD 57 Tiridates Nero, emperor between AD 54—68, is one of the most took over the throne once more, giving way to the first debated Roman figures. The polemic originates in the violent confrontation. Indeed, if ever there was an emperor despised brother Tiridates alone in Armenia. Corbulo then led a and mistreated, as much by the classical sources as by triumphal march over Armenia between AD 58—60, modern scholarship, it is without a doubt Nero, who has taking over the two main cities, Artaxata and been characterized as sadistic, degenerated, matricide, Tigranocerta.

The Nevertheless his appointment was not random or Roman commander was clearly inept, lacking caution and impulsive; Nero was merely satisfying the request of his military ability. Nevertheless it is worth noting other main man in the east, Corbulo. The emperor reacted aspects that led to his disaster. For instance, Tacitus swiftly, faced by a complicated situation and the demands stresses the personal problems existing between of his general, showing coherence in his decisions and Caesennius Paetus and Corbulo and openly speaks of their trust in Corbulo.
The mistake lay in the specific choice of mutual dislike for each other. It is an interesting fact, military command.
