Berisades (in Greek Bηρισάδης) was a ruler in Thrace, who inherited, in conjunction with Amadocus II and Cersobleptes, the dominions of the Thracian king Cotys on the death of the latter in 358 BC. Berisades was probably a son of Cotys and a brother of the other two princes.
Berisades' reign was short, as he was already dead in 352 BC; and on his death Cersobleptes declared war against his children.
The Birisades (Bιρισαδης) mentioned by Dinarchus is probably the same as Parisades, the king of the Bosporan Kingdom, who must not be confounded with the Berisades mentioned above. The Berisades, king of Pontus, whom Stratonicus, the player on the lyre, visited, must also be regarded as the same as Parisades.
