Roman - Sasanian Wars | The Battle of Satala (298)

The Battle of Satala was fought in 298, in Armenia, between the forces of the Roman Empire under the Tetrarch Galerius and the forces of the Sasanian Empire of Persia led by Shah Narseh (Narses).

The battle was an overwhelming victory for the Roman army, with the Persian army destroyed as a fighting force.

The Romans obtained an enormous amount of plunder from the defeated Persians, and captured Narseh's principal wife.

The campaign concluded with a very favourable peace treaty for Rome, with Persia ceding considerable territory.
