I see, so in that case, why don't we consider that Arabia, both succulent and bitter, does not seem to have ever been conquered by anyone. Yes I know one ruler of one of the two river empires supposedly retired or vacationed there, but in general this neighborhood is never mentioned, except for the supposed failed Roman invasion. Does this or could this mean there was nothing worth taking?, or was it just impossible to take? If it was impossible then what kind of empire or military might ruled there?
Just posing a question.
Caio! And happy Mardi Gras!
