The Persian book is in 158 pages and presents vivid descriptions of Sassanian Armenia, also known as Persian Armenia or Persarmenia (252-646 AD), IBNA reported on its Persian website.
Hossein-Talaee specializes in territorial and ideological integrity of the Arsacid (Parthian), Sassanid and Byzantine empires, as well as ancient Armenia, Antioch and nomad tribes. For his book he spent several years exploring Armenian, Persian and Roman sources and documents on the ancient land.
