KAMBYSES (Καμβύσης).  Greek form of Persian Kambujiya (q.v.), meaning "the Kambujien" or "Crown Prince Kambuja."  This was the name of the father of Cyrus the Great.  In Memphis he was lord of all the nations from Baktra to the Nile... He is said to have resembled the mad emperor Paul of Russia... The madness (sent upon him by the gods) was, according to informants of Herodotos, shown first in the insults which he heaped on the mummy of Amasis,... He is said to have had a tiger-like temper which must slake its rage in blood... (A General History of Greece, Cox, 1876)
