The story of Pacorus, a prince of the Parthian Empire who is captured by the Romans and sent to Italy to live out the rest of his days as a slave. But fate intervenes and he is freed by a gang of runaway gladiators led by a man named Spartacus. This is the epic tale of the Spartacus slave revolt, as told by the man who fought by his side. The Parthian empire lasted four centuries, longer than most Eastern Empires. After the Scythian-Parni nomads (Assyrians called them Ashkuz) had settled in Parthia and had built a small independent kingdom, they rose to power under king Mithradates the Great.
