Tirida'tes

2. The guardian of the royal treasures at Persepolis, wrote to Alexander to inform him that the inhabitants wished to seize the treasures, and to beg him to march with all speed to the city. In consequence of this information Tiridates was left by Alexander in the same post which he had occupied under Dareius. He was afterwards made satrap of the Gedrosii and Arimaspi by Alexander. (Curt. 5.5, 6; Diod. 17.69, 81.)
