Ancient Greek World, Kingdom of Characene (2nd-1st Century BCE), Tetradrachms(C) ED. Located in southern Mesopotamia where the Tigris and Euphrates river meet the Persian Gulf, Characene thrived as an important port for trade between the West and India. Charax, the capital of Characene, was founded by Alexander the Great. It existed as an independent kingdom with first, Greek Seleucid and then Parthian overlords.

On occasion it even sided with the Romans in their wars with the Parthians. The more centralized Sassanian Empire brought its independence to an end in AD 222.
