Plutarch. Lucullus. 21.3 + 29.2
[21.3] Now the sway of the Armenians was intolerably grievous to the Greeks. Above all else, the spirit of the king himself had become pompous and haughty in the midst of his great prosperity. All the things which most men covet and admire, he not only had in his possession, but actually thought that they existed for his sake.
[29.2] And though he found him destitute of all things and humiliated, he did not return his insolent behaviour, but got down from his horse and wept with him over their common sufferings. Then he gave him his own royal equipage, and tried to fill him with courage for the future. And so these kings began again to assemble fresh forces.
But in the city of Tigranocerta, the Greeks had risen up against the Barbarians and were ready to hand the city over to Lucullus; so he assaulted and took it.
- שלטון מלך ארמניה טיגראנס הראשון קשה לתושבים היוונים באנטוליה, לכן היוונים מורדים במלך ה"ברברי" ומקבלים את הכובש הרומי לוקולוס.
