"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.
Notes:
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).
