Cappadocian Kingdom, Ariarathes V Eusebes Philopator, 163 - 130 B.C.
Ariarathes V Eusebes Philopator reigned 33 years, and was perhaps the greatest king of Cappadocia. He was distinguished by his excellence of character and his cultivation of philosophy and the arts. Allied with Rome, according to Livy, he was educated there. When his throne was taken, Rome restored it to him. The year this coin was struck, Ariarathes V died in battle supporting Rome against Eumenes III of Pergamum. In return for his contribution to the Romans success in Pergamum, Lycaonia and Cilicia were added to the dominions of the Cappadocian Kingdom.
