Pigres

2. A Paeonian, who, with his brother Mantyas and his sister, came to Sardes, where Dareius was at the time, hoping that by the favour of Dareius, he and his brother might be established as tyrants over the Paeonians. Dareius, however, was so pleased with the exhibition of industry and dexterity which he saw in their sister, that he sent orders to Megabazus to transport the whole race into Asia. (Hdt. 5.12, &c.)
