Despite being a powerful city and later Empire, Rome was not the only state seeking to control the lands around the Mediterranean Sea. Conquest and expansion brought the Romans into conflict with the mighty Parthian Empire, which had experienced a meteoric rise to power and was now in a position to challenge the Imperium Romanum along its eastern border.
