Meaning of the baby name ARGISTIS.

  

ARGISTIS.  King of Ararat, the son of Minua, king of Ararat or Armenia.  He induced Mutallu, king of Kummutha or Commangene, to revolt against Sargon II., but when the Assyrians approached he deserted both his friend and his kingdom, and fled from his country, which was ravaged and annexed by the Assyrians.  Recovering from this defeat he greatly enlarged the kingdom, even in turn invading Assyria for that purpose.  This led to a long war with Shalmaneser III., who compelled him to retire into the mountains as a tributary, after a conflict extending over eight years. (An Archaic Dictionary, Cooper, 1876).
