Iotapa (spouse of Sampsiceramus II)
Iotapa was a princess from the Kingdom of Commagene, who lived in the second half of the 1st century BC and the first half of the 1st century. She was one of the daughters of King Mithridates III of Commagene and Queen Iotapa of Commagene. Iotapa was of Armenian, Greek and Median descent. She was most probably born, raised and educated in Samosata, the capital of the Kingdom of Commagene.
From a surviving inscription dated from the reign of her husband, Sampsiceramus II along with Iotapa are known as a happy couple.
