Mithridates and The Roman Conquests in the East, 90-61 BCE
In conquering Mithridates the Romans, almost against their wish, were forced to conquer most of the nearer Orient---especially all of Asia Minor and Syria---and to come face to face with Parthia.
Such and so diversified was this one war against Mithridates, but in the end it brought the greatest gain to the Romans; for it pushed the boundaries of their dominion from the setting of the sun to the river Euphrates.

But Mithridates, though a fugitive from his kingdom, did not abandon all hope : he collected a body of irregular troops, with which he expelled the king of the Dandarians ; and, as soon as the main body of the Roman troops were with­ drawn from the Bosporus, he prepared to invade that kingdom.
MITHRIDATES (MiOptiarris) of pergamus, was the son of Menodotus, a citizen of that place, by a daughter of Adobogion, a descendant of the tetrarchs of Galatia, but his mother having had an amour with Mithridates the Great, he was gene­rally looked upon as in reality the son of that monarch.
The dictator hastened to his support by sea, and, landing at the mouth of the Nile, united his forces with those of Mithridates, and imme­diately afterwards totally defeated the Egyptian king in a decisive action which put an end to the war.

This Mithridates and his successors achieved in a series of campaigns against the Seleucid invaders and later the Romans in the west, and in the east against the Greco-Bactrian kingdom and the nomadic peoples who again and again emerged from the steppes between the Oxus and the Jaxartes.
The first campaign of Mithridates I was probably directed against the Greco-Bactrian kingdom (between 160 and 155 B.C.) with the aim of reconquering the territories that had been lost in that region during the reign of Arsaces I, especially the area around Nisa.
One instance of this was the accession of Mithridates I. It was customary for the eldest son to succeed to the throne, but in this case Phraates 1 passed over his numerous sons and appointed as king his brother Mithridates.

Even Mithridates II, however, soon came up against an internal problem which was eventually to prove a contributory factor in the downfall of the Parthian empire: the power and influence of the Parthian nobility, represented by a few great families, were from now on in a position to oppose the monarch frequently.
One instance of this was the accession of Mithridates I. It was customary for the eldest son to succeed to the throne, but in this case Phraates I passed over his numerous sons and appointed as king his brother Mithridates.

The Parthia system, moreover, was one which allowed greater liberty to the subject races than the Macedonian, as it had been understood and carried out by the Seleucidae; and so far some real gain was to be expected from the change.
Mithridates indeed, the original conqueror, is accused of having alienated his new subjects by the harshness of his rule; and in the struggle which occurred between him and the Seleucid king, Demetrius II., Persians, as well as Elymseans and Bactrians, are said to have fought on the side of the Syro-Macedonian.
It is not surprising that under these circumstances the bonds were loosened between Parthia and her vassal kingdoms, or that the Persian tributary monarchs began to despise their suzerains, and to contemplate without alarm the prospect of a rebellion which should place them in an independent position.

 The Beginnings of the Arsacids - (The Circle of Ancient Iranian Studies - CAIS)©
The occupation of Parthia by the Parni and the establishment of the Parthian Empire, then, took place about 238 B.C. But the earliest evidence referring to the Arsacids assigns their beginnings to the reign of Antiochus 11.
The Arsacid Era was the dating "as the king reckons."[19] The kings of Parthia, like those of Pontus, of Bithynia, etc., imitated the Seleucid computation with one of their own.
[7] Justin calls the Parni "Parthes" (XLI, 1, 1, etc.) and places the separation of Parthia from the Seleucids under Seleucus II (that is, after 246) and in the consulship of M. (or C.) Atilius and L. Manlius, that is, in 256 or 250.

In a series of victorious campaigns, Antiochus compelled Arsaces III of Parthia to pay tribute, formed an alliance with Euthydemus of Bactria, and made a treaty with the Indian ruler Sophagaesenus (See 206).
Meanwhile in 139 Demetrius was captured by Mithridates I of Parthia and was succeeded by his younger brother, Antiochus VII Euergetes Eusebes Soter Sidetes.

, between the forces of the Triumvir Marcus Licinius Crassus (1) and the army of Parthia, under the command of General Surenas, was one of the worst defeats ever inflicted on the Roman legions.
Parthia had destroyed one of the armies of the triumvirate and had gained the eagles of the fallen legions.
No revenge was forthcoming from Rome, embroiled in its Civil Wars, nor until the time of Augustus was any treaty made with the Parthians to return the symbols of legionary power.

Confusion exists among historians as to whether Arsaces I or his brother Tiridates ruled until 211 B.C., but it is generally accepted today that Arsaces I was the king and Arian's references to Tiridates should be attributed to Arsaces.
Arsaces I overthrew Andragoras, the Seleucid governor of Parthia and was crowned in 247 B.C. in Asaak (Arshaak), the capital city of Astauene.
Early in his reign of 36 years he invaded and conquered Hyrcania and then, on the death of the elder King Diodotus in Bactria, formed and alliance with Diodotus II.
