Artaphernes, son of Artaphernes, was the nephew of Darius the Great, and a general of the Achaemenid Empire.

He was appointed, together with Datis, to take command of the expedition sent by Darius to punish Athensmarker and Eretriamarker for their support for the Ionian Revolt. Artaphernes and Datis besieged and destroyed Eretria, but were beaten by the Athenians at the Battle of Marathonmarker.

Ten years later, we find Artaphernes in command of the Lydians and Mysians.
