A great battle barely remembered! Persians/Parthians are injustly remembered as bad soldiers... Nisibus was a demonstration against that perjudice.

The Persians were generally remembered as being a number game when it came to warfar, yes, but the Parthians gouged a place in history as a constant threat to Roman power in the east via their iconic horsemen. They beat Crassus and remained a threat to Rome and their client states in the are until the Sassanid empire overthrew them

I would not put it as Sassanid empire overthrew them-This sounds like if invasion of some different state done it but it was the very same state which only changed its ruling Dynasty.

I think we simply have a different idea of the definition of "overthrew". To me, a foreign power subjugating a sovereign state and one family taking the position of another is only different in scale.

The artist is actually Igor Dzis. He updates his blog every now and then with new works. Lots more Roman paintings where that came from.

Very meticulous. All the detail gives the image a very real sense of carnage with minimal gore. The anatomical structure is superb and your colors are gorgeous. Did you research the uniforms? I'm finding a definite focal point on the fallen horse in the front, is that deliberate? Or should you work on drawing the eye around the image?

Nah man, I wish. I'm basically using all these Roman images for reference, for a PC mod.
