About Good Very Fine.
Tarkondimotos I was a Roman client king of Cilicia, who at first supported Pompey in the civil war against Julius Caesar, but after Pompey's defeat and death was pardoned by Caesar and confirmed in his title and possessions. During the Liberators' civil war, he sided with Gaius Cassius Longinus, and after that with Marc Antony, whom he followed in the opening stages of the war against Octavian. Tarkondimotos was killed in a battle at sea in 31 BC, fighting under Gaius Sosius against Marcus Vipsanius Agrippa.
