Ariaramnes (Ariyâramna): name of the great-grandfather of the Persian king Darius I. A short inscription by Ariaramnes, known as AmH, was found on a golden tablet in Hamadan (ancient Ecbatana) and runs like this:
Ariaramnes, the great king, king of kings, king in Persia, son of king Teispes, grandson of Achaemenes. King Ariaramnes says: This country Persia which I hold, which is possessed of good horses, of good men, the great god Ahuramazda bestowed it upon me. By the favor of Ahuramazda, I am king in this country. King Ariaramnes says: May Ahuramazda bear me aid.
It is unclear when this text was made. It can be a fraud (modern or ancient), but it may be an original document.
