Episode CXXXVIII - Rise of the Sasanian Empire (Severus Alexander II)

from  Emperors of Rome

Mar 24, 2020

Severus Alexander was an emperor who spent much of his reign at war, but he was ill-suited to it and would likely have preferred to be elsewhere. His main enemy was the Sasanians, an empire that rose out of the ashes of the Parthians, and would be a leading regional power for the next 400 years.
