Κωφήν, Κώφης), or COPHES, son of the satrap Artabazus [No. 4, p. 368b.), was appointed to convey to Damascus the treasures of Dareius, when the latter marched from Babylon to meet Alexander, B. C. 333. (Arr. Anab. 2.15; comp. Curt. 3.10.) The favour with which Alexander regarded Artabazus was extended also to Cophen, whom we find mentioned among the young Asiatic nobles that were enrolled in the body of cavalry called Α῍γημα, in the reorganiza-tion of the army in B. C. 424. (Arr. Anab. 7.6; comp. Plb. 5.25, 65, 31.3.)
