these tales won for them the favour of all classes, and
they passed rapidly through many editions. Among
Miss Mitford's other works we may name " Belford
Regis; or, Sketches of a Country Town," "Stories of
American Life by American Writers," "Recollections
of a Literary Life," (3 vols., 1852,) and "Atherton, and
other Tales," (1854.) Died in 1855.

See the " Life of Mary Russell Mitford, told by herself in Letters
to her Friends," edited by the REV. A. G. K. L'ESTRANGE, Lon-
don, 1870; "Quarterly Review" for December, 1824; "Blackwood's
Magazine" for June, 1854.

Mitford, (WILLIAM,) an English historian, born in
London in 1744. He entered Queen's College, Oxford,
and subsequently studied law at the Middle Temple.
He was appointed in 1769 a captain in the South Hamp-
shire Militia, where he acquired the friendship of Gib-
bon, the future historian, at that time an officer in the
came regiment. Mitford published in 1774 his " Inquiry
into the Principles of Harmony in Languages," which
was followed by a "Treatise on the Military Force,"
etc. Having visited France and Italy, he was appointed,
after his return, lieutenant-colonel of the Hampshire
Militia, (1779,) and was subsequently returned to Parlia-
ment, as a Tory, for Newport, Beer-Alston, and New
Romney. He brought out in 1784 the first volume of
his " History of Greece," completed in five volumes in
1818. Its style is characterized by great spirit and
warmth of colouring, and displays uncommon learning
and research, but it is strongly tinctured with the anti




with extreme injustice. Scarcely anything can be ima
gined more partial or more false than his picture of the
great conflict between Athens and Philip of Macedon.
Philip, as he represents him, unites the perfections of a
king, a hero, and an accomplished statesman ; Demos-
thenes, on the contrary, is a demagogue, violent, venal,
and dishonest" " Mitford's History of Greece is," says
De Quincey, " as nearly perfect in its injustice as human
infirmity will allow."

See MACAULAV, Review of "Mitford's History of Greece;"

1821 ; " Nouvelle Biographic Ge'neVale."

MIth'ra or MIth'ras, [Gr. Mt'Spoc; Lat. MITH'RAS;
Sanscrit, MIT'RA or MITRAS,] a deity of the ancient
Persians, usually regarded as the god of the sun ; but
he is more properly the god of day, and, in a higher and
more extended sense, the god of light, presiding over
the movements and influence of the principal heavenly
bodies, including the five planets and the sun and moon.
By the followers of Zoroaster he was regarded as the
chief of the Izeds, (a class of angelic beings,) and in a
particular manner as presiding over the light which
mortals enjoy on earth, (but as distinct from the sun,)
and as a mediator between men and Ormuzd. The
primary signification of the Sanscrit Mitra is a " friend ;"
and Mithra would seem to be the representative of
light as the friend of mankind and as the mediator
between earth and heaven. In this character of medi-
ator, as well as in some other respects, he would seem
to approach the character of AGNI, (which see.) In
the time of the emperors the worship of Mithra was
introduced extensively into Italy and other parts of the
Roman empire. He is usually represented as a hand-
some young man, seated or kneeling on a bull, into which
he is thrusting the sacrificial knife ; at his side are the
evening and morning star, and near at hand a dog, a
lion, and other animals, the signification of which is at
present very imperfectly understood.

Mithridate. See MITHRIDATES.

Mith-rl-da'teS, [Gr. MiSpiAiTw or MiflpoooTijf; Fr.
MITHRIDATE, me'tRe'dSt',] a Persian name, borne by
several kings of Pontus, who were descended from
Artabazes, a Persian noble. It is supposed to be de-
rived from AfitAra, (the sun,) and signifies "given by
the sun." Little is known of Mithridates I., who was
the son of Ariobarzanes.

Mithridates II., the son of Ariobarzanes II., began
to reign about 337 B.C. He extended his dominions by



conquest, and was called the founder of the kingdom ol
Pontus. In a war with Antigonus he was defeated, made
prisoner, and put to death, about 303 B.C.

Mithridates III., a son of the preceding, succeeded
his father, and made conquests in Paphlagonia. He
died after a reign of thirty-six years, and was succeeded
by his son, Ariobarzanes III.

See CLINTON, "Fasti Hellenic!'

Mithridates IV., of Pontus, the son of Ariobarzanes
III., began to reign probably about 245 B.C., when he
was a minor. He waged a successful war -against
Seleucus Callinicus, who, to obtain peace, gave him his
own sister in marriage, with one or two provinces as a
dowry. He is supposed to have died in 190 B.C. His
successor was Pharnaces I.

Mithridates V., surnamed EVERGETES, was a grand-
son of the preceding, and a son of Pharnaces I., whom
he succeeded in 156 B.C. He was a steadfast ally of
the Romans, who ceded to him the province of Phrygia.
After a peaceful reign, he died about 122 B.C.

Mithridates VI., King of Pontus, surnamed EU'PA-
TOR, and more commonly called THE GREAT, born about
135 B.C., was the son of Mithridates V., whom he suc-
ceeded about the age of fifteen. He had great political
and military talents, and is said to have been master of
twenty-five languages. In the early part of his reign he
found scope for his ambition in the conquest of Colchis
and of the Scythian tribes which roamed on the north
of the Euxine. His attempt to acquire Cappadocia by
fraud and force was resisted by the Roman senate about
93 B.C. After forming an alliance with Tigranes, King
of Armenia, then the most powerful monarch of Asia,
he took the field in the year 88 with about 250,000
men, and defeated the Romans in several actions. In
the same year he instigated a general massacre of the
Romans resident in Asia Minor, of whom it was com-
puted that 80,000 fell in one day.

In the year 87 he sent a large army into Greece, where
he was opposed by Sulla and defeated at Chaeronea, 86
B.C. Timbria, with another Roman army, invaded Bi-
thynia and gained a decisive victory in the year 85. The
next year Sulla and Mithridates made a treaty of peace,
by which the latter abandoned his recent conquests.
Muraena, who had obtained command of the Roman
army, with some flimsy pretext renewed hostilities, and
was completely defeated on the river Halys in 82 B.C.
As the Roman senate had not ratified the treaty which
he signed with Sulla, Mithridates made great preparations
for war, which was renewed in 74, when two Roman
armies, under Lucullus and Cotta, entered Bithynia, De-
feated with great loss by Lucullus at Cyzicus and Cabin,
Mithridates, retarding the pursuit of the Romans by the
riches he threw in their way, took refuge in the kingdom
of Tigranes (who was his son-in-law) about 72 B.C., and
gave orders that his wives Monima, Berenice, etc. should
be put to death.

Tigranes, having espoused his cause, was defeated at
Tigranocerta by Lucullus in 69, and at Artaxata in 68 B.C.
Mithridates then entered Pontus, and in 67 B.C. gained
a great victory over the Romans under Triarius, and re-
covered his kingdom. Lucullus, whose victorious career
had been interrupted by a mutiny of his troops, was
superseded in 66 by Pompey the Great, who soon tei
minated the war. After losing a battle, the King ot
Pontus fled to Lake Maeotis, (now the Sea of Azov,) and
offered terms of peace, to which Pompey did not accede.
While he was busy in raising a new army among the
Scythians and other barbarous tribes, his son Pharnaces
conspired against him, so that, to avoid the fate of a
captive, he took poison, in the year 63 B.C. After Han-
nibal, Mithridates was the most formidable enemy Rome
ever encountered. Cicero considered him superior in
power and character to any other king against whom
the Romans ever waged war.
