HATRA

hatra

Hatra may have been built by the Assyrians or by the Achaemenid Empire, or possibly in the 3rd or 2nd century BC under the influence of the Seleucid Empire, but there is no reliable information on the city before the Parthian period. The city flourished during the 1st and 2nd centuries AD, as a religious and trading center.Later on, the city became the capital of possibly the first Arab Kingdom.
