Ariamnes of Cappadocia
Ariamnes II (in Greek Ἀριάμνης; ruled 280 BC – 262 BC or 230 BC), was a ruler and king of Cappadocia, who 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.
