Along the southern shore of the Black Sea the Hellenistic kingdoms of Pergamon, Bithynia and Pontus developed from the breakup of Alexander's empire.

Pergamon and Bithynia were small but wealthy realms, famed for the beauty of their cities and the flowering of Greek arts and letters during the later Hellenic period.

Mithradates VI Eupator

Pontus was a wilder land many of whose inhabitants were still semi-barbarous. Its last king, Mithradates VI, was a remarkable adventurer who conquered the minor kingdoms of Bosporos and Colchis and then fought three great wars with Rome. After losing the last to Pompey the Great, he committed suicide at the age of 69.
