Named after Epyaxa (fl.401 B.C.) the queen of Cilicia (at the coast of Anatolia northeast of Cyprus). She was married to Syennis III. The couple supported the revolt of Cyrus the Younger against his brother Artaxerxes II Mnemon {see planet  (7212)} as discussed by Xenophon {see planet  (5986)} in Anabasis. Epyaxa had her own army and her own lavish budget to spend. After the defeat of Cyrus at Cunaxa, the position of Syennesis and Epyaxa was difficult and Cilicia became an ordinary strapy. (LDS) _ _.
