"For besides, Mithridates was in other respects a just king and more/rather friendly to the Romans."[1]
Greek Original:
Ἐπιτηδειέστερος: καὶ γὰρ ὁ Μιθριδάτης τά τε ἄλλα ἔνδικος βασιλεὺς ἦν καὶ Ῥωμαίοις ἐπιτηδειέστερος.
The headword, an irregular comparative of the adjective ἐπιτήδειος (epsilon 2685, epsilon 2687, epsilon 2688), is presumably extracted from the quotation given.
[1] A fuller version of what has already appeared at epsilon 1178. Roos (1912: 18) tentatively attributed it to Arrian's Parthica and suggested that it alludes to the Caucasian-Iberian Mithridates who took control of Armenia with the backing of the Romans. See Cassius Dio 26.3.4; Tacitus, Annals 6.32 ff, 11.8, 12.44 ff.; RE s.v. Mithridates (33).
