About Iotapa of Commagene

Do not confuse her with her sister, also named Iotapa. This Iotapa was the wife of Sampsiceramus II of Emesa.

Do not confuse her with her daughter, also named Iotape. The Loeb Family Tree and other sources erroneously say the wife of Sampsigeratnus II was a daughter of Aristobulus Minor. In fact, the wife of Aristobulus Minor was a daughter of Sampsigeratnus and this Iotape.

From Wikipedia:

Iotapa was a princess from the Kingdom of Commagene, who lived between the 1st century BC and 1st century AD. She was one of the daughters of King Mithridates III of Commagene and Queen Iotapa of Commagene. Iotapa was of Armenian, Greek and Medes descent. She was most probably born, raised and educated in Samosata, the capital of the Kingdom of Commagene.

Iotapa married the King Sampsiceramus II from the Royal family of Emesa, Syria who ruled from 14-42. Through her marriage to Sampsiceramus II, she became Queen of Emesa. Iotapa with Sampsiceramus II had four children; two daughters: Iotapa, Mamaea and two sons: Gaius Julius Azizus, Gaius Julius Sohaemus.
