Justinian, who paid the Persian monarch ten thousand
pounds of gold. He afterwards carried on wars with
various Asiatic nations, extending his empire as far as
the Indus. Alarmed at the successes of Belisarius in
Italy and Africa, he resolved to strike a sudden blow.
In 540 he invaded Syria, pillaged and burned several
cities, including Antioch, and took a multitude of pris-
oners and an immense amount of booty. The next yeai
he was opposed by Belisarius, one of the greatest gene-
rals of that or of any age. The Roman commander, with
a small number of ill-disciplined soldiers, succeeded in
holding in check the innumerable hosts of Persia. But
in 542 this great general was recalled, and Khosroo,
having now nothing to fear, went from victory to victory.
The war continued until 562, when Justinian purchased
a treaty for thirty thousand pieces of gold. Hostilities
were again renewed under the emperor Justin, and the
King of Persia met at length with a total defeat, in 578,
from Justinian, the general of the emperor Tiberius.
Khosroo died in 579. The long and beneficent reign of
this prince is mentioned by Oriental poets as the golden
age of Persia. His virtues, his wise and efficient meas-
ures for the welfare of his subjects, his conquests, his
liberal encouragement of literature and science, attested
by the numerous colleges and libraries which he founded,
all rendered it worthy of this eminent distinction. A
Pehlvi translation of the celebrated Bidpay or Pilpay
Fables of India was made under the auspices of this
prince. He was succeeded by Hormisdas IV.

I , was raised to the throne of Persia upon the deposition
of his father, A.D. 590. He was soon after driven from
his capital by the rebel Bahrain, and obliged to seek the
protection of Maurice, the Emperor of the East. This
sovereign, with a powerful army, overthrew the rebels
and reinstated Khosroo. In 602 Maurice was assassin-
ated by the usurper Phocas. Khosroo immediately took
up arms to avenge his death, and by a series of victories
in a few years subjugated the greater part of the Greek
empire, and at length appeared before the gates of Con
stantinople. Heraclius, the successor of Phocas, having
vainly attempted to obtain a favourable peace, resolvec

victories, and in five years drove the Persians out of
