Sitalkes was a prince of the Odrysian royal house. He was leader of a body of Thracian light-armed troops, which accompanied
Alexander the Great as auxiliaries on his expedition to Asia. The Thracians were renowned for their horses and cavalry. The Thracian tribe of the Dii were responsible for some of the worst atrocities of the Peloponnesian War killing every living thing. In Media under the command of Parmenion, Sitalkes received, through the agency of Polydamas, royal orders to kill the old general.
In this province he remained until after the return of Alexander from India, when he prepared, together with Cleander and Heracon,
to meet the king in Carmania, 326 BC. He was followed by many persons from Media, who accused him of numerous acts of rapine, extortion,
and cruelty, and on these charges he was put to death by order of Alexander.
