We derive necessary and sufficient conditions for an ordered eventually regular semigroup to be a Dubreil-Jacotin semigroup. We show that an eventually regular Dubreil-Jacotin semigroup has a biggest idempotent. Necessary and sufficient conditions for this biggest idempotent to be a weak middle unit or to be medial are related to the semigroup being naturally ordered and to the set of regular elements being a subsemigroup.
