Tiberius Julius Sauromates III

Tiberius Julius Sauromates III, sometimes known as Sauromates III (Greek: Τιβέριος Ἰούλιος Σαυροματης Γ', flourished 3rd century, died 232) was a prince and Roman Client King of the Bosporan Kingdom.

Sauromates III was the first-born son to the Bosporan King Cotys III and his mother was an unnamed Sarmatian noble woman. He was of Greek, Iranian and Roman ancestry. His two younger brothers were princes Rhescuporis IV and Ininthimeus. Sauromates III was named in honor of his paternal grandfather, previous Bosporan King Sauromates II.

The father of Sauromates III, Cotys III succeeded his paternal uncle and cousin Rhescuporis II and Rhescuporis III in 227, after their deaths. In 229 until 232, Sauromates III co-ruled with his father, Cotys III. Sauromates III was a contemporary to the rule of the Roman Emperor Alexander Severus. On coins his royal title is in Greek: ΒΑΣΙΛΕΩΣ ΣΑΥΡΟΜΑΤΟΥ or of King Sauromates. Little is known on the life and reign of Sauromates III. When Sauromates III died, he was succeeded by his brother Rhescuporis IV.
