Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Abdissares ruled the kingdom of Sophene after the assassination of his father, Xerxes in 212 BC.There are no known western sources for this king, only numismatic. His coins are almost similar to those of his father.His name seems to include the Aramaic prefix "Abd" which means slave. Aramaic was widely used in that region, and yet why would he have such a name, compared to his Armenian father Xerxes or brother Orontes IV? This may have seem as a slur by the local Aramaic people, yet it is borne on his coins.
