As early as 125 BC, due to their strategic links with other Celtic tribes, the Aedui were given the prestigious title of "brothers of Rome" by the Roman senate.
Aedui alliances with the Bituriges, the Helvetii (Swiss Celts who migrated eastward in 58 BC until stopped by Caesar), and the Boïens (allies of the Helvetii), were supported by Rome to counterbalance the Arverni, a powerful tribe southwest of the Aedui.
Sometime between 12 and 7 BC the entire population of Bibracte was moved by the Romans to a new city on the plain called Augustodunum (the modern Autun).

 The Parthian period (
In 95 BC the Armenian king Tigranes II, a hostage at the court of Mithradates, was placed on the throne of Armenia by his Parthian overlord, and the small kingdoms of northern Mesopotamia--Adiabene, Gordyene, and Osroene--gave allegiance to Mithradates.
Mithradates II died about 87 BC, although he may have died earlier, since the period after 90 BC is dark and a usurper named Gotarzes may have ruled for a few years in Mesopotamia.
In 92 BC Orobazes, an ambassador from Mithradates II, came to him seeking a treaty, but nothing was concluded, since instructions from Rome did not include negotiations with the Parthian power.

Hipparchus is highly regarded for his work around 140-125 BC on the discovery of precession, the first nova, his theory for the motions of the Sun and Moon, his top quality planetary observations, as well as the all-time-first catalog of ~1000 stars.
Schaefer said that the date of 125 BC immediately points to Hipparchus' catalog, from 129 BC, as the original observation source.
The case for Hipparchus' lost star catalog appearing on the Farnese Atlas is based on: (A) The derived date of 125 BC matches Hipparchus and rejects all other candidates.

He calculated the length of the year to within six and a half minutes, developed a scale to rate the brightness of stars, was the first to record a nova, theorized on the motions of the Sun and Moon, provided high quality planetary observations and created the first ever catalog of 1,000 stars.
The date of 125 BC immediately suggests that this is the lost catalog of Hipparchus, who created his star catalog in 129 BC.
The works of Aratus (275 BC), Eudoxus (366 BC), and the Assyrian observer (1130 BC), are all too early, while Ptolemy’s work in 128 AD is too late to match up to this star catalog.
