At Herodotus’ time, Cappadocia comprised the territories between the Taurus Mountains and the Euxine (Black) Sea coast, from the mouth of the Halys River (1.72) east to Colchis and Armenia. Cappadocia appears as a satrapy in the Persian records, belonging to the third tax district (3.90.2). The Royal Road ran through it (5.52), and Cappadocians served in Xerxes’ invasion force of 480 B.C.E. (7.72).
