Coin of Osroes II

Osroes II of Parthia (Parthian: 𐭇𐭅𐭎𐭓𐭅, Khusraw), was a claimant of the throne of the Parthian Empire c. 190. He is unknown to history except for the coins he issued. The date of his reign suggests that he rebelled against Vologases IV but was unable to maintain himself against Vologases V. His coins were issued by the mint at Ecbatana, suggesting that he controlled Media.
