From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Mithridates III (Greek: Mιθριδάτης) was the fourth king of Pontus, probably son of Mithridates II. He may have ruled in an uncertain period between 220 BC and 183 BC. Nothing is known of him since the years just cited, because the kingdom of Pontus disappears from history. His same existence is contested by certain historians, even if it is necessary to account for Appian's indication of Mithridates Eupator as the eighth king of the dynasty and the sixth of the name.[1]
