Tigranes Iii.

king of Armenia, appears to have been a son of the preceding, and to have succeeded him on the throne for a short time : but the accounts transmitted to us of the revolutions of the Armenian monarchy at this period are very confused and unsatisfactory. (See Visconti, Iconographie Grecque, iii. p. 30; and Orell. ad Tac. Ann. 2.3.) According to a fragment of Dio Cassius, quoted by Visconti (l.c.) he perished in a war against the neighboring barbarians.
