This booklet provides an account of the military history of Pontus (a hellenistic era kingdom that was centred along the southern shore of the Black Sea in what is now modern day Turkey. The Kingdom was officially proclaimed in around 281BC, and lasted until its eventual conquest by the Romans in 63BC, when the western half was incorporated into the empire and the eastern half survived as an imperial client state. Sections in the booklet include:
The History of Pontus
Mithradates VI the Great
The Geography of Pontus: including Pontus Proper, Armenior Minor, Colchis and Crimea and the Western Black Sea
The condition of the booklet is generally very good. The covers have some minor scuffs, and light creasing and wear along the edges and corners, but the staple spine is intact, and all pages are intact, unblemished and tightly bound.
