Arbaces (ar-ba'-seez), a general of the Medes, who served under Sardanapalus, King of Assyria. Disgusted with the effeminacy of that monarch, Arbaces took arms against him, and compelled him to fly to Nineveh, where he committed suicide, when Arbaces ascended his throne, which he filed for 28 years.
