About Mithridates VI, king of Pontus

King of Pontus, in modern-day northern Turkey. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Mithridates VI or Mithradates VI ([pronunciation?]; Greek: Μιθραδάτης, Μιθριδάτης),[2] from Old Persian Miθradāta, "gift of Mithra"; 135–63 BC, also known as Mithradates the Great (Megas) and Eupator Dionysius, was king of Pontus and Armenia Minor in northern Anatolia (now Turkey) from about 120–63 BC. Mithridates is remembered as one of the Roman Republic’s most formidable and successful enemies, who engaged three of the prominent generals from the late Roman Republic in the Mithridatic Wars: Lucius Cornelius Sulla, Lucius Licinius Lucullus and Gnaeus Pompey Magnus. He is often considered the greatest ruler of the Kingdom of Pontus.[3]
