The Siege of Dara was raised by the Sasanian king Khosrow I in 573 during the Byzantine–Sasanian War of 572–591. The fortified city fell after 4 months. The Sasanians used captured Roman ballistae from the abandoned Roman Siege of Nisibis (573). The news of the fall of Dara, long a major Byzantine stronghold in Upper Mesopotamia, drove Emperor Justin II insane. Bahram Chobin was commander of the cavalry force in the siege, and was promoted to the spahbed of the North after this victory.

  • El sitio de Dara se produjo en 573, durante la guerra bizantino-sasánida de 572-591. El asedio duró cuatro meses, y terminó con la caída de la ciudad a manos de los persas sasánidas. La noticia de la caída de Dara, que durante mucho tiempo fue un importante bastión bizantino en la Alta Mesopotamia, al parecer afectó la salud mental del emperador Justino II.
