Just completed my third game and thought I'd actually won, but I'm not sure that I did.
It was on the final turn, the last Mythos card had been turned over. Jim culver entered the gate in Arkham and travelled to the Void Between Worlds. He succeeded and I placed an Eldritch token on the Final Mystery card, solving the mystery.
I thought I'd won. But, on reading the card it says the mystery is solved at the end of the Mythos phase, but there weren't any Mythos cards left.
So does that mean I didn't win?

Yes, yYou won. This has been discussed elsewhere and according to reference guide, if a win and lose condition occur at the same time (as in this case), the investigators win.

There is one instance where I had the mystery solved and I rumored out during the mythos phase. Because the rumor was finished before the end of the mythos phase I lost the game, but in your case you won because they occurred simultaneously (at the end of the mythos phase).

for completeness sake: The state that you cannot draw a Mythos card at the beginning of the Mythos phase ends the Mythos phase immediately and you lose the game. But since you finished the last mystery "at the end of the mythos phase" you also win the game.
And in a case where you simultaneous win and lose, you win
