Science Daily: 'Dura-Europos on the Euphrates was conquered by the Romans who installed a large garrison. Around AD 256, the city was subjected to a ferocious siege by an army from the powerful new Sasanian Persian empire... The Sasanians used the full range of ancient siege techniques to break into the city, including mining operations to breach the walls.'
