Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Bosporan Kingdom or the Kingdom of the Cimmerian Bosporus was an ancient state, located in eastern Crimea and the Taman Peninsula on the shores of the Cimmerian Bosporus (see Strait of Kerch). It is interesting as the first truly 'Hellenistic' state in the sense of one in which a mixed population adopted the Greek language and civilization. The Bosporan Kingdom was the longest surviving known Roman Client Kingdom. It was a Roman Province from 63 to 68, under Roman Emperor Nero. In the 1st century and 2nd century was a period of a new golden age of the Bosporan state. In the end of the 2nd century the King Sauromates II inflicted a critical defeat to the Scyths and included all the territories of the Crimea in the structure of his state.
