    Default The kingdom of Pontus

    A very interesting part of Persian history, the kingdom of Pontus was a state that combined Persian and greek elements, the founder of the empire, king Mithridates was of greek and Persian ancestry, and supposedly a direct descendant of darius the great, the state also combined greek polytheism with Persian gods to create a recognized religion that incorporated both. This greek/Persian ancestral mix basically made up the remaining and following kings that became ruler of the state. Whats interesting is that although it was classed as a Persian state, the recognized language was greek, and the culture was very hellenized.
