Gnaeus Pompeius Trogus About Armenia

A Gallo-Roman historian Gnaeus Pompeius Trogus described Armenia in this way:

“You cannot ignore such a large kingdom, since its territory, after Parthia, is larger than the territory of all other kingdoms.

Greater Armenia stretches from Cappadocia to the Caspian Sea for eleven hundred thousand steps and is seven hundred thousand steps from north to south.”

Similarly, a Byzantine emperor of the 3rd century Justinian I noted that Armenia had the most influence after Rome and Parthia.
