Kingdom of Bosporus, Rhoemetalces, c. 131 - 154 A.D.
Rhoemetalces, the Roman Client King of the Bosporan Kingdom, was the son and heir King Cotys II. He was of Greek, Iranian and Roman ancestry. His father named him in honor of his ancestor, King Rhoemetalces I from the Odrysian Kingdom of Thrace. During the reign of Antoninus Pius, Rhoemetalces traveled to Rome for a hearing of a dispute with the imperial commissioner. The nature of the dispute is unknown, but after the hearing concluded, the emperor sent Rhoemetalces back to the Bosporan.
