1084 - Sulayman embarked on a campaign in Anatolia to capture as many provinces as he could.

The implications were that most provinces in Anatolia were autonomous, perhaps still under the rule of a Byzantine Toparch, only paying tribute to Turks such as Sulayman.

Perhaps because they chose to give whatever financial aid they could to emperor Alexius rather than remove forever the few troops they had to defend their towns and cities, this might have been the cause for Sulayman to embark on this campaign.
He left the city of Nicea under the command of Amin of Ghazni.
