Assyria was another of the Provinces of the Parthian Empire which was incorporated into the Roman Empire after the conquest of Parthia. The Assyrians, like the Province of Greccia and Aegyptus, were some of the Provinces which had a civilization older than the Romans, by Roman standards however. Assyria was a deeply Zoroastrian Province and the religions of the Romans and the Gnostics were rather small minorities. Assyria was not an Imperial Province for long. The wealthy and important Province, which Assyria was, quickly built itself anew after their conquest and made many new advances for the Roman Empire.
