Tiberius Julius Rhadamsades

Tiberius Julius Rhadamsades, sometimes known as Rhadamsades (Greek: Τιβέριος Ἰούλιος Ραδαμσαδης, flourished second half of 3rd century & first half of 4th century – died 323) was a prince and Roman Client King of the Bosporan Kingdom.

Rhadamsades was the second born son to the Bosporan King Theothorses and an unnamed woman. He was of Greek, Iranian and Roman ancestry. His eldest brother was prince Rhescuporis VI.

Around 308/309, Rhadamsades succeeded his father when he died. Rhadamsades became co-ruler with his older brother Rhescuporis VI. Rhadamsades ruled as Bosporan King with Rhescuporis VI from around 309 until his death in 323. Rhadamsades was contemporary with the Tetrarchy and Constantinian dynasty in the Roman Empire. On coins his royal title is in Greek: ΒΑΣΙΛΕΩΣ ΡΑΔΑΜΣΑΔΗΣ or of King Rhadamsades. During his reign, various metals were used including brass to create and mint coinage in the Bosporan. Otherwise, little is known of the life and reign of Rhadamsades. When Rhadamsades died in 323, his brother Rhescuporis VI became the sole ruler of the Bosporan.
