STATUES OF MITHRIDATES VI AND HIS BROTHER AT DELOS

Greek text:   IDelos_1560
Date:   c. 115/4 B.C.
Format:   see key to translations

This is one of two inscriptions from Delos (the other is IDelos_1561 ), which belong to the early part of the reign of Mithridates Eupator, when his brother Chrestos was still joint king. In about 112 B.C., Mithridates killed his brother and became sole king.   For a suggestion on the missing word after 'Eupator' in the inscription, see L.Ballesteros-Pastor, "A Neglected Epithet of Mithridates Eupator (IDélos 1560)" ( academia.edu ).


These statues of king Mithridates Eupator Eu... [and] of his [brother] Mithridates Chrestos were dedicated by Dionysios of Athens, the son of Neon, who had been gymnasiarch.
