Clodius and son of king of Armenia

This post is also available in: Polish (polski)

After the restoration of the throne to the king of Armenia, Tigranes II, Pompey the Great took with himself to Rome his son – also Tigranes. First, he placed him at home, later – with the praetor Lucius Flavius.

In 57 BCE Clodius took him from there. Then he sent him on a ship to Armenia. Most likely, he did so in order to be able to influence the ruler himself. Unfortunately, because of the storm, the ship came to port in Antium. Both Clodius and Pompey sent their men for the passenger. The fight started as a result of which died i.e. Marcus Papirius – friend of Pompey. The further fate of the Armenian prince is unknown.
