The battle was a Byzantine victory. In 572, the then Byzantine ruler Justin II (r. 565-578) refused to renew the annual payments to Persia that had been part of the "Eternal Peace" concluded by his uncle, Justinian I (r. 527-565) and the Persian shah Khosrau I (r. 531-579) in 562.

For the next few years, both states refrained from major operations. In 584, Maurice appointed his brother-in-law, Philippicus, as magister militum per Orientem, i.e. the commander-in-chief for the Mesopotamian front. In 586, after Maurice rejected new Persian peace proposals, Philippicus...More: http: //booksllc.net/?id=3171720
