Excerpt from History of the Later Roman Empire, From the Death of Theodosius I. To the Death of Justinian, Vol. 2 of 2

The rulers Of Constantinople would hardly have steered their section of the Empire with even such success as they achieved through the dangers which beset it in the fifth century, had it not been that from the reign Of Arcadius to that Of Anastasius their peaceful relations with the Sassanid kings Of Persia were only twice interrupted by brief hostilities. The unusually long duration Of this period Of peace, notwithstanding the fact that the conditions in Armenia constantly supplied provocations or pretexts for war, was in a great measure due to the occupation of Persia with savage and dangerous enemies who threatened her north-eastern frontier, the Ephthalites or White Huns, but there was a contributory cause in the fact that the power Of the Sassanid kings at this time was steadily declining. It is Signifi cant that when, at the end Of the fifth century, a monarch arose who was able to hold his own against the encroachments of the Zoroastrian priesthood and the nobility, grave hostilities immedi ately ensued which were to last with few and uneasy intervals for a hundred and thirty years.
