Palace of Mithradates VI Eupator Discovered by Russian Archeologists
Mithradates VI Eupator

Ruins of the burnt down palace of the ancient king Mithradates VI Eupator have been discovered in Taman Peninsula, on the place of the old city of Phanagoria.
      On the site of fire archeologists also found purses with coins, and broken but otherwise well-preserved earthenware.
      The found coins are not a hoard: they were abandoned by the kings family and courtiers trying to escape from the fire and violence - the head of the Taman expedition Vladimir Kuznetsov says.
      He reminded that Phanagoria, once a Greek colonial settlement, was for several centuries the capital of the Asian part of the Bosporus state. As for Mithradates VI, he lived there about the year 63 BC. Historians assume that a rebellion broke up in the city, and the residents captured the kings daughter and four sons, and set on fire the centre of the city, including the palace, where the kings family lived.
