Zarinaea, also referred to as Zaranya (meaning "the golden") (alternative spelling Zarina) was a Sacae woman, the sister of Cyraedus, and the wife of Marmares, ruler of the Parthians. She was noted for her beauty, wisdom, and her bravery, as Sacae women went into the field with men. When war broke out between the Medians and the Parthians and Sacae, she fought in battle and was wounded.[1] Ctesias related her story towards the end of the 5th century B.C.E. [2]
