A province of Osrhoene was established and a much-reduced client-kingdom of Edessa maintained. Roman power now formally extended across the Euphrates into northern Mesopotamia as far as the upper Tigris. The Euphrates below the Khabur confluence was also under Roman control and experienced a military presence. The territory in between this stretch of the Euphrates and the Tigris was partly controlled by the kingdom of Hatra, but east of the Euphrates and west of the Tigris below Dura lay inhospitable land that probably acted as a natural barrier to troops from either empire.

In the long term, therefore, the military build-up that developed under the Flavians on the upper and middle Euphrates was focused more on offensive capacity than defence. While the Roman military presence on the middle and upper Euphrates was maintained in the second century, it appears that there were no Roman fortifications on the river below Zeugma until after the victory over Parthia in the middle of the second century under Lucius Verus. From this period a larger section of the Euphrates came under more direct Roman control, with Roman fortifications located as far down the river as Dura Europos.

The reign of Septimius Severus saw the formal establishment of Roman power in Mesopotamia with the formation of a Roman province garrisoned by two permanent legions. His reign also saw the division of Syria into two new provinces and the establishment of numerous fortifications on the middle Euphrates and Khabur rivers. The period of Severus’ rule also provides the earliest clear evidence of the formal inclusion of Palmyra within provincial territory. A province of Osrhoene was established and a much-reduced client-kingdom of Edessa maintained.
