*Tarkondi/motos), the king of Cilicia, fought on Pompey's side against Caesar, in B. C. 48, but was pardoned by Caesar, and allowed to retain his dominions. After the death of Caesar he joined C. Cassius, and sub. sequently espoused the side of Antony against Octavian. He was killed in a sea-fight in B. C. 31, while fighting under Sosius against M. Agrippa. His name is variously written in the ancient authors, but we learn from coins that Tarcondimotus is the correct form (D. C. 41.63, 47.26, 1. 14; Strab. xiv. p.676; Cic. Fam. 15.1; Flor. 4.2.5; Plut. Ant. 61.) The sons of Tarcondimotus deserted Antony after the battle of Actium, and united themselves to Octavian; but Philopator, who had succeeded his father, was deprived by Octavian of the part of Cappadocian Pontus, which he held. In B. C. 20, however, Tarcondimotus, one of the sons, received from Octavian all the possessions of his father, with the exception of a few places on the coast. (D. C. 51.2, 7, 54.9.)
