About this deal

BC – Battle of Baecula – Romans in Hispania ( Iberia) under P. Cornelius Scipio the Younger defeat Hasdrubal Barca. Emperor Caracalla, the son of Severus, marched on Parthia in 217 AD from Edessa to begin a war against them, but he was assassinated while on the march. [309] In 224 AD, the Parthian Empire was crushed not by the Romans but by the rebellious Persian vassal king Ardashir I, who revolted, leading to the establishment of Sassanid Empire of Persia, which replaced Parthia as Rome's major rival in the East.

The emperor was the most important man in the whole empire. Ultimately, he had absolute power over everyone and everything in the empire. We care about our planet!
