The East Roman–Sassanid War of 440 was a short conflict between the East Roman Empire and the Sasanian Empire. The reason for its short ending was that the southern Roman provinces were being invaded by the Vandals, which forced the East Romans to sue for a quick end to the war to focus on the Vandal invasion. The Sasanians were also paid some money in return for peace.
