About Mιθριδάτης


Mithridates I of Parthia

Mithridates or Mithradates I (Ancient Greek: Μιθριδάτης or Μιθραδάτης, Persian: مهرداد Mehrdād) (ca. 195 BC? - 138 BC) was the "Great King" of Parthia from ca. 171 BC - 138 BC, succeeding his brother Phraates I. His father was King Phriapatius of Parthia, who died ca. 176 BC). Mithridates I made Parthia into a major political power by expanding the empire to the east, south, and west. During his reign the Parthians took Herat (in 167 BC), Babylonia (in 144 BC), Media (in 141 BC) and Persia (in 139 BC).

Mithridates I's son,
