ABSTRACT
The article details events which led to the Battle of Carrhea, a battle fought in June of 53 BC near the town of Carrhae between the Roman Republic under the Roman general Marcus Licinius Crassus and the Parthian Empire under the Parthian Spahbod Surena. Crassus arrived in Syria in the spring of 54 BC with plans to invade the Parthian Empire. Plutarch, who wrote the most detailed account of the campaign, suggests Crassus wanted to match the military exploits of Caesar and Pompey, his partners in the First Triumvirate.
