Throughout its long history of waging war around the Mediterranean Sea, Rome came into conflict with many rival states. After centuries of fighting in the Near East, the Romans faced one final major enemy in the region: the Sassanid Empire. These Persians would prove to be a fearsome opponent for the Romans, who struggled to hold their territory in the Near East.
