Ariamnes of Cappadocia
Ariamnes II (in Greek Ἀριάμνης; ruled 280 BC – 262 BC or 230 BC), was a ruler and king of Cappadocia, succeeded his father Ariarathes II. He was fond of his children, and shared his crown with his son Ariarathes III (262 BC or 255 BC – 220 BC) in his lifetime. He was probably the first to obtain the independence of Cappadocia from the Seleucid Empire.
