The Poison King: Mithradates, Rome's Deadliest Enemy

Sponsored by AIA - San Francisco

AIA Society Event: San Francisco

by Adrienne Mayor, Research Scholar in Classics and Hist. of Sci., Stanford University

Mithradates VI of Pontus (134-63 BC) was one of the most colorful kings of antiquity. Hailed as a savior, feared as the Eastern Hannibal, this scientific genius and cold-blooded poisoner fascinated ancient historians and medieval chroniclers. Machivelli studied his tactics; his last hours inspired Mozart’s first opera. After his death, Roman emperors and European royalty sought his famous elixir against poisons. Mithradates’ amazing story is told by his biographer, Adrienne Mayor, drawing on the latest scientific and archaeological discoveries.

This lecture is co-sponsored with the Department of Classics and takes place in  370 Dwinelle Hall on the UC Berkeley campus.
