Date: 106  BC

Description:

Ariarathes VII Philometor king of Cappadocia, was son of king Ariarathes VI and wife Laodice.

In his first years he reigned under the regency of his mother Laodice, sister of the king of Pontus Mithridates VI During this period the kingdom was seized by Nicomedes III, king of Bithynia, who married Laodice. But Nicomedes was soon expelled by Mithridates, who restored upon the throne Ariarathes VI; but when the latter objected to his father's assassin and ally of Mithridates, Gordius, the king of Pontus had him killed and put in his place a son of his, Ariarathes IX.
