Persian Empire, Tarkumuwa (Datames), Satrap of Cilicia & Cappadocia, c. 384 - 362 B.C., Tarsus, Cilicia
|Cilicia|, |Persian| |Empire,| |Tarkumuwa| |(Datames),| |Satrap| |of| |Cilicia| |&| |Cappadocia,| |c.| |384| |-| |362| |B.C.,| |Tarsus,| |Cilicia|, Datames' enemies in Artaxerxes' court accused him, perhaps falsely, of intending to revolt against the Great King. Secretly warned, he then did, in fact, revolt, c. 370 B.C. The revolt appeared to be leading to a breakup of the entire western half of the empire into autonomous states. His own son's desertion to Artaxerxes was, however, the beginning of the end, which came when Datames was assassinated, c. 362 B.C.
