Not to be confused with Mavia (queen)

Mania was the wife of Zenis, satrap of ancient Dardanus (in modern day Turkey) under Pharnabazus II. She became satrap herself in about 399 BCE after her husband's death.[1] She attended the battles of her mercenaries in a carriage or chariot, and was never defeated. Polyaenus describes her as an excellent general. She had one daughter whose husband Medias murdered Mania in her apartments.[2]
