This map shows the Roman-Parthian trade route system, circa between the 1st and the 3rd centuries CE. During this period, the Roman Empire and the Parthian Empire were the two superpowers of the region and the Roman-Parthian trade system played a key role in the geopolitics of the time. Maritime trade routes are shown in blue, while land trade routes are shown in orange.

Please note that this map does not show all trade routes, only the most important ones are represented.
