But why does Synkellos mention ten kings of Pontos? 16 The first possibility seems unlikely, since this would move the beginning of the dynasty into the 4th century BC contrary to the information in Synkellos. 17 They should be considered especially because her rule, according to one tradition, ended in 12 BC,18 which approximates the date found in Synkellos. 19 The sons of Pharnakes II, Dareios (App. B Civ. 74) and Arsakes (Strab. 8) cannot be considered the ninth and tenth Pontos kings either, despite the fact that they actually ruled in Pontos, since Dareios died in 39-37 BC20 and Arsakes in 37-36 BC.
