Description

Tigranes the Great’s victory entrance to Tigranakert, by Vahan Garibyan

Earlier Greek mercenaries, bribed by Lucullus, opened the gates of Tigranakert. The newly built and wealthy city was destroyed and plundered.

The battle for Tigranakert started. Lucullus’s army suffered a complete defeat. As mentioned by Greek historian Dion Cassius, Armenians killed many Roman soldiers. Many of them were wounded very heavily as Armenians used two-pronged bows.

Lucullus had to leave the borders of Greater Armenia. Tigran the Great started the liberation of the country by one military unit. The reputation of the Armenian power was resumed. In 67 BC the Armenian army entered Cappadocia. Thus they tried to restore Armenian power in Syria, as well as on the Mediterranean coast. The Roman Senate has taken extraordinary measures. Lucullus was dismissed from the position of Commander-in-Chief.
