Jalinus Fahmi (Galen) (Persian: گلینوش) was an Armenian nobleman during the late Sassanian era. He was the commander of the guard over Khosrau II, during the latter's imprisonment. Jalinus was a Sasanian commander during the Arab Muslim invasion of Mesopotamia.
Jalinus Fahmi was from the Sasanian province of Armenia. After his defeat at the battle of Kaskar, Jalinus was sent by Yazdegerd III to crush the invading Arab forces along with 60,000 men and the commander-in-chief of all armies of the empire, Rostam Farrokhzād at the Battle of al-Qādisiyyah. Jalinus commanded the Right center of the army. After Rostam's death at the battle and the other commanders withdrawal, Jalinus took command of what was left of the Sasanian army.[page needed] He gained control of the bridgehead, and succeeded in getting the bulk of the Sasanian army across the bridge safely.[page needed]. He was killed at the battle of al-Qadisiyyah.
