Xerxes of Sophene

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Xerxes (died c. 212 BC) was the King of Sophene and son of Arsames II. During his domination, Antiochus III the Great invaded his capital Arsamosata. Xerxes recognized Antiochus as his sovereign and received his sister Antiochia as his bride[1], who later killed him.
