Historical background


CARIA - SATRAPS OF CARIA - HEKATOMNUS

(392-377 BC)

Hecatomnos, a native of Mylassa, succeeded Hyssaldomos, satrap of Caria in 395 BC. Commander of the Persian fleet, he took part in operations during the reconquest of Cyprus in 390 BC after the revolt of the king of Salamis, Evogoras I (411-373 BC). Hecatomnos remained in power for fifteen years, choosing Mylassa as the capital of his satrapy. His eldest son, Mausolle, succeeded him on his death in 377 BC..
