The Middle East has remained divided[1] between two superpowers. The Roman empire (now ruled from Constantinople and known to modern scholars as the eastern Roman Empire) rules the western parts of the region, Asia Minor,[2] Syria[3] and Egypt,[4] while in the eastern parts of the region – Iran[5] and Mesopotamia[6] – the Parthian empire has been replaced by a new Persian empire. The Persian rulers of the Sasanian dynasty[7] have proved more aggressive and formidable opponents of the Romans than their Parthian predecessors had.
