VOLOGE´SIA

VOLOGE´SIA (Οὐολγεσία, Ptol. 5.20.6), a city built by and named after Vologeses, one of the Arsacidan kings of Parthia, in the immediate neighbourhood of Seleuceia upon the Tigris. It is called by Pliny, Vologesocerta (6.26. s. 30), the latter portion of the name implying the “city of.” The extensive ruins, still existing, on both sides of the Tigris, are probably those of the two great cities of Seleuceia and Vologesia.
