Pigres of Paionia with his brother Mantyas and his sister, came to Sardes, where Darius I was at the time, hoping that by the favour of him, he and his brother might be established as tyrants over the Paeonians.

Information[edit]

Darius, however, was so pleased with the exhibition of industry and dexterity which he saw in their sister, that he sent orders to Megabazus to transport Paeonians into Asia.
