2. SAUROMATES II. was a contemporary of the emperors Trajan and Hadrian, and is incidentally mentioned by the younger Pliny as having sent an embassy to the former emperor (Plin. Epp. 10.13, 14, 15). From his coins we learn that he ascended the throne as early as A. D. 91, before the death of Domitian, and that he still occupied 1 it in A. D. 124. The annexed coin, which bears on the obverse the head of Hadrian and the date 413 (A. D. 117), belongs to this Sauromates.
