1. The progenitor of the kings of Cappadocia, who is himself styled by Diodorus king of that country. He is said to have married Atossa, a sister of Camrbyses, the faiher of Cyrus; by whom he had a son named Gallus, who was the great-grandfather of Anaphas, one of the seven Persians who slew the Magi. (Diod. xxxi. Exc. Phot. p. 517.) [ANAPHAS]. But the whole genealogy is probably fictitious.
