Abstract

The conquest of Pontus by Lucullus had traumatic consequences on the main cities of the kingdom. Ancient literary sources stress the philanthropy of the imperator who tried to make up for the damages caused by his troops' wrath. Nevertheless, Lucullus's activity had a deflecting impact for these cities. The case of Amisos, one of the capital cities of the Pontic kingdom, seems to be especially interesting.
