The Flavian period is another poorly documented phase of Roman–Parthian relations, but its importance to subsequent events cannot be sidestepped. The common opinion is that Vespasian, Titus, and Flaminius systematically reorganized the eastern Roman Empire in 69–96 CE, with the Parthian problem their main concern. Yet the provincialization of Commagene and Lesser Armenia and the stationing of legions on the upper Euphrates are better understood as organic developments speaking to the Flavian need to posture for a domestic audience and secure the Roman East in the face of threats from the Alani. Most evidence instead speaks to cordial Roman–Parthian relations.
