Oxydates

(*)Ocuda/ths), a Persian of high rank, who, for some cause or other, had been imprisoned by Dareius at Susa, and was found lying there under sentence of death, when the city fell into the hands of Alexander. For this reason he seemed the more likely to be faithful to Alexander, who appointed him satrap of Media. In this office Oxydates was subsequently superseded by Arsaces. (Arrian, 3.20.4; Curt. 6.2.11, 8.3.17.)
