Brev. VI.12.4

Periit autem apud Bosphorum,

    vir ingentis industriae consiliique.

Regnavit annis sexaginta,

vixit septuaginta duobus,

contra Romanos bellum habuit annis quadraginta.





  • Bosphorum: Mithridates had been driven to Byzantium, a city located here on the Bosphorus.
  • annis quadraginta: The First Mithridatic War lasted from 88-84 BCE, the Second from 83-81 BCE, and the Third from 75-63 BCE. Though annis appears as an ablative, treat it as an accusative agreeing with quadraginta to show time duration.
