Pixo'darus

*Picw/daros).

1. Son of Matussolus, a Carian of the city of Cindys, who was married to the daughter of Syennesis, king of Cilicia. Having taken part in the great revolt of his countrymen and the lonians against the Persian king (B. C. 490), he advised the Carians boldly to cross the Maeander, and engage the Persian general Daurises with that river in their rear : but this counsel, though regarded by Herodotus as the best that could be given, was not followed, and the Carians were defeated in two successive battles. (Hdt. 5.118.)
