  • Due sono le ipotesi sull'origine di Aka II: potrebbe essere figlia del principe Antioco II di Commagene, secondogenito del re Antioco I Theos e della regina Isias, oppure essere figlia di Aka I di Commagene. Quest'ultima fu figlia della principessa Antiochis di Commagene, seconda figlia del re Antioco I Theos e sorella di Antioco II. Aka è però famosa per aver sposato il greco-egiziano Trasillo di Mende, astrologo e grammatico alessandrino che editò le opere di Platone e Democrito, nonché amico del futuro imperatore Tiberio. Fu proprio grazie all'influenza che poteva vantare sull'imperatore, che Trasillo e la moglie poterono ottenere al cittadinanza romana. Aka diede a Trasillo due figli. Il primo, Tiberio Claudio Balbillo, fu a sua volta un astrologo e padre di Claudia Capitolina, futura moglie del principe di Commagene Gaio Giulio Archelao Antioco Epifane. La figlia Eunia, invece, sposò il prefetto del pretorio Nevio Sutorio Macrone. (it)
  • Aka II (gr.: η Άκα, ē Aka, I w. p.n.e./I wiek n.e.) – księżniczka kommageńska, pochodząca z ormiańskiej dynastii Orontydów. Są dwie wersje co do pochodzenia Aki II. Prawdopodobnie mogła być córką króla Kommageny Antiocha II Epifanesa, drugiego syna króla Kommageny Antiocha I Theosa Dikajosa Epifanesa Filoromajosa Filhellena i królowej Isias II Filostorgos. Drugą możliwością jest, że jej matką była Aka I, córka Antiochis, siostry Antiocha II Epifanesa oraz prawdopodobnie żony brata Mitrydatesa II Antiocha Epifanesa Filoromajosa Filhellena Monokritesa, króla Kommageny. Aka poślubiła egipskiego Greka Trazyllusa z Mendes, który pochodził z greckiej rodziny mieszkającej w egipskim mieście Mendes. Trazyllus był gramatykiem aleksandryjskim, edytorem Platona i Demokryta, jednak był najbardziej znany jako astrolog. Trazyllus stał się przyjacielem Tyberiusza, przyszłego rzymskiego cesarza, dzięki któremu wraz z żoną Aką II otrzymał obywatelstwo rzymskie oraz imię Tyberiusz Klaudiusz. Aka II urodziła mężowi Trazyllusowi dwoje dzieci (syna i córkę): * Tyberiusz Klaudiusz Balbillus, grecko-egipski astrolog i uczony * Eunia, późniejsza żona prefekta pretorianów Kwintusa Sutoriusza Makrona (pl)
