Rhescuporis VI - King of the Bosporan Kingdom from 303 AD to 342 AD
Tiberius Julius Rhescuporis VI was the last ruler of the Bosporan Kingdom, a client realm of the Roman Empire. He ruled from 303 until his death in 342, and was a contemporary to the Tetrarchy and the Constantinian dynasty in Rome. Little is known of his life and reign.

In 303, Rhescuporis VI became co-ruler with his father, Theothorses. When Theothorses died around 308/309, Rhescuporis VI's brother Rhadamsades succeeded their father and became co-ruler with him. During his and his brother's co-rule, various metals were used including brass to create and mint coins in the Bosporus. When Rhadamsades died in 323, Rhescuporis VI became the sole and last ruler of the Bosporan Kingdom.

The King of the Goths, Ermanaric conquered the Bosporan Kingdom, killing Rhescuporis VI and subjecting the kingdom and the citizens to his rule. Rhescuporis VI was buried in a royal tomb in Panticapaeum, the original capital city of the Bosporan Kingdom.
