Osroes II (also spelled Chosroes II or Khosrow II; Parthian: 𐭇𐭅𐭎𐭓𐭅 Husrōw), was a claimant of the throne of the Parthian Empire c. 190.[1] He is unknown to history except for the coins he issued.[1] The date of his reign suggests that he rebelled against Vologases IV but was unable to maintain himself against Vologases V.[1] His coins were issued by the mint at Ecbatana, suggesting that he controlled Media.[2]
