Mithridates III was king of the Parthian Empire. He may have usurped the throne from Orodes I and ruled from 87-80 B.C. (Assar, Gholamreza F. (2006). A Revised Parthian Chronology of the Period 91-55 BC.). Older scholarship places him as the successor to Phraates III and fighting his brother, Orodes II, and ruling from 57-54 B.C. (now attributed to Mithradates IV).
