Βαρσαέντης), or BARZAENTUS (Βαρζάεντος), satrap of the Arachoti and Drangae, was present at the battle of Guagamela, B. C. 331, and after the defeat of the Persian army conspired with Bessus against Dareius. He was one of those who mortally wounded the Persian king, when Alexander was in pursuit of him; and after this he fled to India, where, however, he was seized by the inhabitants and delivered up to Alexander, who put him to death. (Arrian, Arr. Anab. 3.8, 21, 25; Diod. 17.74; Curt. 6.6, 8.13.)
