Subject: [Nova-Roma] The Roman Province (?) of Assyria

Avete Quirites:

In my research for my novel on Julia Domna and her kin, I've had to deal
quite a bit with Mesopotamia. It's true that Hadrian immediately abandoned
Trajan's claims, and re-established the Roman border more or less at the
Euphrates. The primary Roman garrison was at Dura-Europus, where the Cohort
XX Palmyreonorum was stationed. We have an unusually full record of their
books, on papyrus. In the north, the Legio IV Scythica was stationed at
Zeugma and Legio XVI Flavia Firma was stationed at Samosata (the birthplace
of the satirist Lucian), at the Euphrates crossings. (There were more
legions stationed in Syria, closer to the sea; these are the border troops).

During the Civil wars that began in March 193 with the murder of Helvius
Pertinax, the emperor who was most likely part of the coup d'etat that
murdered Commodus on New Year's Eve 192, Pescennius Niger, the Governor of
Syria (as it was called, though separate from Syria Palestina, to the
south), declared his intention for the purple. Septimius Severus marched
against him and defeated him by early 194 (the end of February at the
latest). The Parthians had given aid to Niger so Severus invaded northern
Mesopotamia, claiming as new a new province of Mesopotamia out of the
northern client-king states of Osrhoene & Adiabene. The Parthians had their
own troubles, which Severus meant to take to his advantage. But before he
could accomplish much, he returned west to defeat Clodius Albinus, the
governor of Britain whom he had made Caesar and then betrayed by naming his
own son, Bassianus, Caesar (and dubbing him Marcus Aurelius Antoninus to
boot; this is the man history remembers as "Caracalla", though in 195 he was
7 years old). However, in 195 an equestrian procurator, L. Valerius
Valerianus, was appointed as praepositus summa ratio privata with the task
of organizing the province of Mesopotamia at the new capital of Nisibis. He
also (in 194) divided Syria into 2 parts, Syria Coele (or "hollow") to the
north, and Syria Phoenice to the south.

Severus left a garrison force at Nisibis, between the Tigris and Euphrates,
but as soon as he left, the Parthians laid seige to the city. It held out
through 197, when Severus returned after defeating Albinus outside Lyons.
Severus relieved Nisibis and marched on Ctesiphon, at which point the
Parthian king Vologaeses (V or VI or maybe IV, I can't recall offhand) fled.
The city was sacked and Severus declared the a new province of Mesopotamia,
taking the title Parthicus Maximus. He also created 3 new legions, I, II &
III Parthica, I & III being stationed in Mesopotamia: I Parthica at Singara
and III Parthica at (probably) Rhesaena. II Parthica was stationed at the
Alban Lake, in Italy.

During this campaign Severus laid siege to the important trade-post city of
Hatra twice, a city which had defied Trajan earlier. The historians Cassius
Dio and Herodian both report that Severus failed to capture the city, but
it's been persuasively argued (to me at least) that a diplomatic victory was
secured, and the city became an outpost for the Cohort IX Maurorum, with the
victory recorded in its way on the Arch of Severus at the Forum, dedicated
at his Decennalia in 203.

So far I haven't been able to map out much of a fasti for the province,
though a number of procurators show up as defacto governors. Vologaeses
died at one point, leaving the empire to his two sons. In a mirror of the
Roman situation, the two sons didn't get along, but unlike Caracalla and
Geta, neither was able to murder the other. Caracalla played them off
against each other and the king of Armenia (one of the Agbars) and in 215
launched an expedition to invade Parthia yet again. Skirmishes were had but
no major battles; the Parthians had an old-fashioned all-volunteer army and
had trouble keeping it, especially during harvest, when all the soldiers
went back to their farms. Herodian and/or Dio records another slaughter at
Ctesiphon during a "faked" marriage between Caracalla and a Parthian
princess, but this is doubtful. It's likely he bought them off, like he did
the Germans in 212.

When Caracalla's praetorian prefect Macrinus murdered him while he squatted
beside the road to relieve himself on his way to or from Carrhae in April of
217, the Parthians continued to wage a guerilla war and Macrinus was
uncomfortable leaving the area, one of many rookie mistakes that ended up
getting him killed when Julia Maesa, Domna's sister, organized the coup that
put her grandson Varius Avitus Bassianus on the throne as yet another Marcus
Aurelius Antoninus. (History remembers him as the much-maligned
"Elagabalus.") Maesa was able to secure things with the Parthians so that
the royal family could return to Rome, and the peace Caracalla bought and
she sealed kept for 12 years.

Unfortunately, the relentless Roman invasions destabilized the Parthians to
the point where a Persian noble of the Sassanid clan was able to overthrow
the government and establish a new Persianesqe dynasty in 227, but aren't
able to immediately begin a war, so all the skirmishing is from a distance.
Maesa's other grandson, Gessius Bassianus Alexianus, had succeeded the
unfortunate Varius in 222 as Marcus Aurelius Severus Alexander, finally
realized the Persians were only going to get stronger, and in 229 gathered
up an expeditionary force to invade. The actual invasion in 231 was a
debacle, but also exhausted the Persians so everything returned to the
status-quo. Alex was murdered in a coup on the Rhine frontier in 235, and
I'm not certain when the province of Mesopotamia was finally abandoned when
the entire eastern end of the empire crumbed in the ensuing decades.

Cassius Dio, a skinflint of the disciplinarian mindset, felt the Parthian
wars were a waste of money and men (in that order) on a region that would
never recoup the cost in revenue. He may have been right. Certainly a good
part of the Mesopotamian-obsession (and empire-expansion in general) is
Homeland Security, keeping the good provinces safe by pushing the border
farther and farther away, but conquest and booty and glory and honor and
blah blah all come into play as well. After 4 invasions, the Romans were
able to destroy the Parthian regime, but a worse one was waiting in the
wings. I'll leave speculation about historical parallels to someone else.

Valete!

"Asterix et les Normands" is an excellent comic-book. But mind you;
those Normans are not from Normandy; they are from Scandinavia (it's
50 BCE after all ;-) ).

The story was written by Ren Goscinny, while Albert Uderzo made the
drawings. Goscinny was a true genius; his sense of humour was
incredible. Unfortunately, he died in the 70's. Since then, Uderzo
has kept writing and drawing Asterix; some of his stories are truly
excellent, but Goscinny was really hard to beat :-).

You should read "Asterix in Britain". That was one of the best :-).

Salvete Plebeian citizens!

Why is this vote important? Because the Tribunes represent you in the government of Nova Roma!

What does a Tribune do? Very simply put:

1)The Tribunes need to know the Constitution of Nova Roma and her laws to make sure that no new laws are passed that are unconstitutional. The Tribunes keep an eye on the big boys (the Senate, the Consuls, or any other magistrate :-))), so that the rights of the people are not compromised. The Tribunes have the right of vetoing the actions of any other magistrate, but in order to actually veto something, the majority of the Tribunes have to be in agreement. This is why 5 Tribunes are necessary: we also need a 'balance of power' within the Tribunate itself.

2) The Tribunes can also propose new laws, which will then be voted upon by all of the citizens of Nova Roma. Two of last year's Tribunes, Gnaeus Salix Astur and Marcus Arminius Maior were quite active in this area.

3) The Tribunes also report what is being discussed in the Senate. Tribune Geminus Sceptius will be posting the next Senate report of 2756 soon.

4) The Tribunes also organize the elections for the Plebeian offices (Plebeian Aediles and Tribunes of the Plebs), which is why I am sending you this email :-) It's time to vote for your favorite Tribune candidate!

5) And if any of the citizens are having any Nova Roma troubles, the Tribunes are always available to help.

And lastly, on behalf of this year's current Tribunes, the best of luck to the 3 candidates in this run-off election. We look forward to welcoming one of you to the team!

From: "Michel Loos,,," <loos@qt1.iq.usp.br>

Salve,

As QFM stated Assyria and Mesopotamia were Provinces created by Trajan,
but they were not ordinary province, they were direct imperial
possesions like Egypt. Therefore not directed by a Consular or
Praetorian governator, but by an Equestrian prefect.

This common way of governing (Egypt and Mesopatamia/Assyria) is quite
interesting, since both lands saw the first cultures and shared a common
problem: the management of hydraulic resources.

The nature of agriculture driven by inondations and irrigations gave
raise to the so-called "hidraulic cultures". I t was necessary in that
type of countries to have a centralized government which could manage
the rivers, instead of small city-states/tribes as in the remainder of
the world (India and China had the same sort of civilizations on the
great rivers).

Through all history, those countries had a different, stronger and more
centralized government than the countries around them.

Egypt was nearly independent with a strong central government under the
muslim empires (be it Abbaside or Turk). The same holds for Irak under
the turkish empire. (Iraq was the center of the Abbaside one).
The very nature of those 2 countries implied a strong, local, often autocratic
government for the last 6 millenaries. I don't believe it is ready to
change.

Caveat: I am speaking of Mesopotamia, not theWestern Desert which always
remained tribal, or the northern mountains: Kurdistan which do not share
the same history.

Avete, Quirites.

The standard work on Trajan's Parthian campaign remains F. Lepper's
_Trajan's Parthian War_ (Oxford, 1948), with a complete bibliography
to 1948 (unfortunately there hasn't been a book-length study since
Lepper's). The two most important treatments of the Roman province of
Assyria and Trajan's decision to retrench from the full extent of his
Parthian conquests are U. Kahrstedt, "La province d'Assyrie cre par
Trajan. A proposal de la guerre parthique de Trajan," _Syrie_, xxxvi
(1959) and A. Degrassi, "Fu Traiano a rinunciare alla Mesopotamia?"
_Rev. Fil._, lxiv (1936). On the simultaneity and military impact of
the pro-Parthian and Jewish revolts, and the Alexandrine riots, see:
L. Motta, "La tradizione sulla revolta ebraica al temp di Traiano,"
_Aegyptus_, xxxii (1952); A. Fuks, "The Jewish Revolt in Egypt, A.D.
115-117, in the Light of the Papyri," _Aegyptus_, xxxiii (1953), which
is the most important of these studies, and "Aspects of the Jewish
Revolt in A.D. 115-17," _Journal of Roman Studies_, li (1961); and
E.M. Smallwood, Palestine c. A.D. 115-118," _Historia_, xi (1962).
For the treaty between L. Catilius Severus and Vogoaeses, see A.
Merlin, "Quelques remarques sur la carrire de L. Catilius Severus,
lgat de Syrie," in _Mlanges syriens offerts a monsieur Rene
Dussaud_, I (Paris, 1939). The cession of part of Roman Mesopotamia
to a Parthian client king was proposed by M.I. Rostovtzeff in "Kaiser
Trajan und Dura," _Klio_, xxxi (1938) on the basis of an inscription
from Dura-Europos (AE, 1936, 68-9) in reply to E.D. Groag, "Zu einer
Inschrift aus Dura," _Klio_, xxix (1936). The only addition I would
make to Q. Fabius Maximus' list of primary literary sources for the
Parthian campaign is the sixth-century Antiochene chronicler John
Malalas' _Chronographia_.

I don't think that it is currently possible to publish English
versions of Asterix because negotiations are still ongoing between the
publishers Egmont and Hodder-Dargaud over the English rights and at
least one lawsuit challenging Hodder-Dargaud over its initial
possession of the English rights. I suppose that a letter to Egmont,
which purchased most of the non-francophone rights to Asterix, might
disclose whether the negotiations/lawsuit are over.

This Jerry Lewis thing needs some explanation:

1) In France movies appear translated not subtitled.
2) What french people apreciate so much is : The body acting of J.Lewis
+ the voice and vocal acting of the french "translator" (what is the
real name for that?)

And the combination is really good. J. Lewis subtitled is really bad,
specially because of the awful voice he uses.

This is somehow the same case, as E.A. Poe which made a tremendous
success in France due to the translation by Baudelaire: The french
version is much much better than the original.
