  • Η Ανθεμουσιάς ήταν ελληνιστική πόλη στην επαρχία της Οσροηνής, της βορειοδυτικής Μεσοποταμίας. Λεγόταν αλλιώς και «Ανθεμούς» ή «Ανθεμουσία». Εκείτο σε απόσταση 24 χλμ. από την Έδεσσα και διαρρεόταν από τον ποταμό Άραξη. Το παλαιότερο όνομα της ήταν «Χάραξ Σίδου», αλλά είτε άποικοι από την Ανθεμούντα της Χαλκιδικής (σημ. Γαλάτιστα), είτε οι Εταίροι της Ανθεμούντος ίλης του Μεγάλου Αλεξάνδρου, την επανίδρυσαν σε «Ανθεμουσιάδα». Από την πόλη περνούσε ο εμπορικός δρόμος που συνέδεε τη Συρία με τη Βαβυλωνία. Κατά το 35 μ.Χ. κατά τον εμφύλιο παρθικό πόλεμο μεταξύ του Τιριδάτη Γ΄ και του Αρταβάνου Β', η Ανθεμουσιάς, όπως και το γειτονικό Νικηφόριον προτίμησαν να ταχθούν με την πλευρά του πρώτου, γνωστού για την ευγενική ανατροφή του. Στην ρωμαϊκή εποχή μετονομάστηκε σε «Μαρκούπολη», αλλά η ονομασία δεν είναι σίγουρο εάν επέζησε σε βάρος της μακεδονικής. Σώζονται νομίσματα των ρωμαϊκών αυτοκρατορικών χρόνων της εποχής του Καλιγούλα και του Καρακάλα, με την επιγραφή ΑΝΘΕΜΟΥCIΩΝ ή ΑΝΘΕΜΟΥCIA με μορφή ανθρώπου που φέρει πύργο για στέμμα. (el)

The city was founded by one of the early Seleucids and, according to Ptolemy, was situated next to Apameia. "Tiridates meanwhile, with the consent of the Parthians, received the submission of Nicephorium, Anthemusias and the other cities, which having been founded by Macedonians, claim Greek names, also of the Parthian towns and Artemita. There was a rivalry of joy among the inhabitants who detested Artabanus, bred as he had been among the Scythians, for his cruelty, and hoped to find in Tiridates a kindly spirit from his Roman training." This conquest by Tiridates III in 35 CE over Artabanus II was short-lived as Artabanus soon returned from Hyrcania with an army of Dahae Scythians. However, he was forced to accept a treaty with the Lucius Vitellius, the Roman governor of Syria, in 37CE, in which he gave up all power. (en)
  • Anthemusias (dal greco Ανθεμουσιάς) o Charax Sidae (oggi ) era un'antica città della Mesopotamia secondo Plinio e Strabone. aggiunge che si trovava a 320 stadi da Apamea, nei pressi del fiume Eufrate, sulla strada per Seleucia al Tigri. Si racconta inoltre che , con il consenso del suo popolo, ricevette la sottomissione di Nicephorium, Anthemusias e di altre città, le quali, essendo state fondate dai Macedoni, davano nomi greci, anche alle città partiche di Halus e Artemita. C'era poi una certa rivalità tra gli abitanti che detestava , di razza scitica per la sua crudeltà, e che sperava di trovare in Tiridate un regnante dallo spirito gentile, per la sua formazione romana. La conquista di questa città da parte di Tiridate III nel 35 fu però di breve durata, poiché una volta tornato dall'Ircania Artabano, condusse con lui un esercito di Sciti. Tuttavia, egli fu costretto ad accettare un trattato di pace con il Lucio Vitellio (padre del futuro imperatore, Vitellio), il governatore romano della Siria, nel 37. (it)
