30.00

Living in a Persian prison, Arshak II was unable to stop the Sassanid invasion of Armenia. Shapur II had conquered Armenia in which he tried to convert Christian Armenians to Zoroastrianism, the main religion of the Sassanid Empire.

Sometime 369 or 370, an Armenian by the name of Drastamat visits the imprisoned Arshak II. During his visit to Arshak II, the King was reminiscing on his glory days and feeling depressed, he took his visitor’s knife and killed himself. Drastamat, moved by what he had just witnessed, took the knife from Arshak II’s chest and stabbed himself as well.
