One of the basic principles of the stability and strength of governments was their ability to create internal security and protect borders against the danger of foreigners. The Arshacid Empire, which from its inception struggled with hostile forces on several fronts, was forced to consolidate its position by expanding security within the country and strengthening its borders against foreign powers, both for defense and for the expansion of its territory. The Parthians succeeded in creating security within the country and within the borders of their territory by adopting a codified program by borrowing from their predecessors and innovations based on the circumstances of the time. Border strength and internal security were managed by nomadic tribes, small towns and Subordinate governments, and their oversight was constantly monitored. The main task of this study is to determine the mechanism of the Parthian government in protecting the borders and creating internal security against external threats and internal problems, which is done by examining the surviving sources from this period and analyzing them based on material artifacts found from the Parthian period. The purpose of this article is to answer the question: what was the executive mechanism of the Parthian government in order to achieve internal and boundary security?
