Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Bagadates I (from the Old Iranian Baga-data, "Given by the gods"), also Bagdates or Baydad, was a frataraka or "Keeper of the Fire," and a governor or sub-dynast for the Seleucids, ruling as a priest-king at Istakhr in the former Achaemenid heartland, the territory of Persis (Fars), after Alexander's conquests. He was the first indigenous Persian satrap to be appointed - or at least tolerated - by the Seleucids, who held the higher administrative posts tightly within the Greco-Macedonian circle that was headed by the "Companions" and their heirs.
