Il cognomen Armeniacus da Nerone a Costantino
Ebook in formato Pdf leggibile su questi device:
The strategic position of Armenia is the reason behind the centrality that this territory assumed in the Eastern policies of some emperors, who, after conquering it, gained the cognomen Armeniacus. This work intends to shed light on the circumstances that led to the inclusion of this cognomen in the shortlist of the cognomina devictarum gentium of the imperial age, with a focus on the figures of Nero and Constantine, who distinguished themselves for the particular circumstances that bound them to this title. Nero, although not officially awarded the title, was probably the first one to understand the importance of having direct control on Armenia; Constantine, three centuries later, worked to strengthen the bond with this region, already based on the religious community.
