Mithridates Mithridates VI was a fierce opponent of Rome. After his father was assassinated by poison, Mithridates developed an antidote to poison by ingesting small doses of poisons throughout his life. After Mithridates was defeated by Pompey and at risk of being captured by Rome, he attempted to poison himself. However, his antidote worked and he survived. He then asked Bituitus, his friend and bodyguard, to kill him with a sword.
