Lt about the dominant character of Mithridates connoisseur of poisons arch schemer and strategist; resilient in defeat savage and vindictive in victory Almost by definition this book will break new ground in that nothing has been written on Mithridates for the general public for almost half a century though scholarly journals have been adding a steady trickle of new evidence which is drawn upon here Few enough leaders went to war with Rome and. A well written fascinating book on the king of Pontus enemy of the Romans I didn't know much about his life and I found this book to be a great read
