Bo'cchoris

*Bo/kxoris), an Egyptian king and legislator, who was distinguished for his wisdom, avarice, and bodily weakness. His laws related chiefly to the prerogatives of the king and to pecuniary obligations. (Diod. 1.94.) From his not being mentioned by Herodotus, it has been conjectured that he was identical with Asychis. (Hdt. 2.136.) Eusebius places him alone in the twenty-fourth dynasty, calls him a Saite, and says that, after reigning forty-four years, he was taken prisoner and burnt by Sabacon. (Chron. Arm. pp. 104, 318, Mai and Zohrab; compare Syncellus, pp. 74, b., 184, c.) According to Wilkinson, he began to reign B. C. 812; he was the son and successor of Turphachthus; and his name on the monuments is Pehor, Bakhor, or Amun-se-Pehor. (Ancient Egyptians, i. pp. 130, 138.) In the Armenian copy of Eusebius his name is spelt Boccharis, in Syncellus Βόχχωρις. (See also Aelian, Ael. NA 12.3; Tac. Hist. 5.3; Athen. 10.418f., where his father is called Neochabis.)
