Among the written sources related to the history of the Sasanians, they have survived in various languages, including Greek, Latin, Syriac, Arabic, Middle Persian, and Chinese, remaining works by Byzantine historians are essential. Despite the hostilities between the Sassanian Empire and the Roman Empire, these resources contain much information about the Sassanid history and culture. One of these sources is the New History by Zosimus. Despite the critical and valuable information in this work, Zosimos has become less of an interest in the research of this field, and the place of its absence is tangible in Persian research. Zosimus, a historian of the fifth and sixth centuries, wrote the New History to find out the reasons for the collapse of Rome and narrated the history of the Roman Empire from the 27th BC to the end of the year 410 AD. Zosimus presented essential and valuable reports in his book on political and military relations between the Sassanians and Roman and the internal organization of the Sassanid empire. This study discusses the significance and position of the New History in Sassanian studies.
