Artavasdes Ii.

perhaps the son of Artaxias II., was placed upon the Armenian throne by Augustus after the death of Tigranes II. He was however deposed by the Armenians; and C. Caesar,who was sent into Armenia to settle the affairs of the country, made Ariobarzanes, a Mede, king. (Tac. Ann. 2.3, 4.)

There was another king of the name of Artavasdes in the later history of Armenia, respecting whom see ARSACIDAE, p. 363b.
