Coins of Rome about Parthia:
Galerius (A.D. 293-311)

Caius Galerius Valerius Maximianus. Created Caesar by Diocletian, A.D. 293-305; proclaimed Augustus, A.D. 305-311. Was beaten by the Persians, but subsequently inflicted a great defeat upon them. Extremely inimical to Christians and probably had much to do with persuading Diocletian to persecute them. As emperor he elevated Licinius to the rank of Caesar. He died in 311.

See the biography of Galerius at De Imperatoribus Romanis, an online encyclopedia of Roman emperors.
