Lazic War

The Lazic War also known as the Great War of Egrisi (Georgian: ეგრისის დიდი ომი, Egrisis Didi Omi) in Georgian historiography and the Colchian War, was fought between the Byzantine and Sassanid Empires for controlling the region of Lazica locally known as Egrisi, what is now western Georgia. The Lazic war lasted for twenty years, from 542 to 562, with varying success and ended in the Byzantine victory. The Lazic war is narrated in details through many pages of Procopius of Caesarea and Agathias Scholasticus.
