Artakama1, daughter of Artabazus, a grandson of king Artaxerxes II, satrap of Daskyleion under Artaxerxes III and Darius III, satrap of Bactria under Alexander2. Her mother is not specifically stated but was probably the only known wife of Artabazus, an anonymous sister of the Rhodian generals Memnon and Mentor, who were in Persian service in the late 340s and the 330s3. She was the second wife of Ptolemy I, whom she married in April 3244. If she was ever repudiated, this probably occurred on the death of Alexander5. Ptolemy had no known children by Artakama.
