The conflicts between the Empires of Iran and Rome started as soon as their borders collided and continued for many centuries starting with the Parthian triumph over the triumvir Crassus at Carrhae all the way to the bloody war of 602-628 between the Sassanids and the Byzantines, which changed the balance of power in the region forever. In our new animated historical documentary we will describe the Roman–Parthian War of 216-217, also known as the Parthian war of Caracalla. The fate of this conflict was decided by the battle of Nisibis in 217 AD.
