Redundant campaignbox[edit]

I think that this campaignbox should be deleted. The events mentioned (the storming of Volandum, fall of Artaxata and Tigranocerta to the Romans, the defence of Tigranocerta and the disaster at Rhandeia) all come from one conflict, the Roman-Parthian War of 58–63 (hence "Armenian Wars" is a bit of a misnomer). Given that Tacitus, our only source, does not provide too many details, these articles, if ever written, could never be expanded beyond two or three short paragraphs. As the events they refer to are already described in the above article, there is no real reason to have a separate box on them. Regards, Constantine 09:42, 12 August 2008 (UTC)
