Sanatruces (Σανατρούκης

the son of Soaemus, as it seems was established on the throne by Septimius Severus. According to Suidas, he was a man highly distinguished by his warlike qualities and many nobler virtues. He seems to be the king of Armenia mentioned by Dio Cassius, who was treacherously seized upon by Caracalla, about A. D. 212. The Armenian name of Sanatruces is Sanadrug. (D. C. 75.9, 77.12; Suidas, s. v. Σανατρούκης; comp. Herodian, 3.9.)
