The Roman Emperor Alexander Severus, who was emperor from 222 to 235, was Syrian. His cousin Elagabalus, who was emperor from 218 to 222, was also Syrian and his family held hereditary rights to the high priesthood of the sun god El-Gabal at Emesa (modern Homs) in Syria. Another Roman emperor who was a Syrian was Philip the Arab (Marcus Julius Philippus), emperor from 244 to 249 Source: Wikipedia®

For the past 16 months the Syrian land was, and continues to be, soaked with the blood of syrians. The blood of those who asked for their basic rights and freedom, and eventually the blood of those who oppressed them. We have a cause, The Syrian cause. it's the future of Syria -the land that was a torch of culture and prosperity for many centuries- the great future that we all know syria has every potential to obtain. No matter what we will face ahead we have to stay loyal to that cause. it's our mission, and our children's mission to build Syria to be the country it deserves to be.



In the Roman Empire period, the city of Antioch was the third largest city in the empire after Rome and Alexandria. with an estimated population of 500,000 at its peak, Antioch was one of the major centers of trade and industry in the ancient world. The population of Syria during the heyday of the empire was probably not exceeded again until the 19th century. Syria's large and prosperous population made Syria one of the most important of the Roman provinces, particularly during the 2nd and 3rd centuries (AD)
