Near Eastern royalty and Rome, 100-30 BC
During the first century BC the royalty of the Near and Middle East figured prominently in the great transition from the Seleucid and Ptolomaic empires, by way of the brief Pontic and Armenian empires, to the triumphant Parthian and Roman empires. Richard D. Sullivan provides, through narrative and citations, a context for the frequent references to eastern kings and queens by Caesar, Cicero, Strabo, Josephus, Tacitus, Appian, Dio, and others. He also discusses related inscriptions, coins, and papyri.
Sullivan focuses on the personnel of the many dynasties that ruled the Near and Middle East, from Thrace through Asia Minor and the Levant to Egypt, then eastward to Armenia, Mesopotamia, and Parthia. He studies such famous figures as Mithradates Eupator, Cleopatra, and Herod the Great, as well as others now obscure. To 'locate' them properly, he provides a narrative history of each dynasty and draws them together in a coherent account of Eastern royal governance and its accommodations with Rome and Parthia during the period of Rome's transition from Republic to Empire.
