Βακχίδης), an eunuch of Mithridates. After the defeat of the latter by Lucullus, Mithridates in despair sent Bacchides to put his wives and sisters to death, B. C. 71. (Plut. Luc. 18, &c.) Appian (App. Mith. 82) calls the eunuch Bacchus. The Bacchides, who was the governor of Sinope, at the time when this town was besieged by Lucullus, is probably the same as the above. (Strab. xii. p.546.)
