“Tigran Received the “King of the Kings” Title for Great Exploits” – Pompeius Trogus

“Tigran Received the “King of the Kings”Cicero was one of the most prominent personalities in the history of Rome. At one of his speeches in the Senate of Rome, when referring to Tigran the Great, he used the word “vehemens”, which meant the highest title of honor given to the political leaders of Rome.

Another Roman historian, Gaius Velleius Paterculus, who lived in the era of Cicero, called Tigran the Great “the most powerful king of his era” and “the greatest king of all kings.”

And the Roman historian Gnaeus Pompeius Trogus noted that Tigran received the title “King of Kings” for great exploits, which were elevated to the rank of the divine.”
