Late Rome's Nemesis - oldies but goldies again

 Salvete Omnes, 


short entry  with a grat link if you may be a Persian history afficionado

my friend Patryk Skupniewicz - via academia platform - published his article from the Ancient Warfare Magazine from 2008.

The article - Late Rome's Nemesis - deals with the Sassanian side of the Persian vs Roman-Byzantine conflicts, and concetrates on the cavalry and the armored Persian asavaran aka knight horseman. It includes a number of my illustrations, painted on paper. 

I think I have not done any drawings of the Sassanid Persian horsemen, being the kontophoroi or hippotaxatoi, in a long time... 

and some sketches to add more light to this minuscule entry
