Did Celsus use SI units? 10:53, 12 December 2006 (UTC)

The modern English translation, which converts Roman units, is cited in Mithridate, which seems to have been used in a "one way merge" with this article. I don't believe that Mithridates VI and Mithridate should be merged, even though it was associated so strongly with him, because all known formulations of the mithridate are taken from sources at least a century afterward, and use of related formulations continued for two thousand years afterward. So I recommend this content be greatly curtailed in this article with prominent mention of the other. 22:40, 18 September 2007 (UTC)

Mithridates vs Mithradates[edit]

I note that the article name is the Roman Mithridates VI of Pontus, but the text of the article uses the Greek Mithradates spelling throughout. In fact, even the bold intro text uses the Greek spelling, and the variation in spelling info is kind of buried. I would think the article should be named for the spelling used in the text (with a redirect from the alternate version). So... is there any standard for which spelling should be used? --Rindis (talk) 21:43, 1 July 2009 (UTC)

"Mithridates" is the more common spelling in English. Paul August 00:21, 6 September 2010 (UTC)

Do not use "The Last King" for citation[edit]

I removed it already, but someone used Michael Curtis Ford's "The Last King" as a reference for Mithridates' poison immunity. It wasn't a necessary reference, as this was already cited, but most importantly, "The Last King" is a work of fiction.

Just pointing this out in case someone tried to re-add it.
