Zarir (also spelled Zarih) was a Sasanian prince who was the leader of a rebellion in northern Iran in 485. According to Armenian historian Ghazar Parpetsi, who is the only source about the life of Zarir, the latter was a son of the Sasanian shah Yazdegerd II. He had several brothers named Balash, Hormizd III, and Peroz I. After the death of Peroz I (who had succeeded his father as king), Balash was elected as king by the nobility and clergy. Zarir, dissatisfied with the election, rebelled. Balash was thus forced to make peace with his enemy Vahan Mamikonian and sent him at the head of an army to suppress the rebellion of Zarir. Zarir was shortly defeated, and fled to the mountains, but was quickly captured and "shot down like an animal".

  • Zareh ou Zarehr est un prétendant sassanide au trône sous le règne de Valash (484-488). L'historien arménien Lazare de Pharbe est le seul à mentionner sa tentative infructueuse de prise de pouvoir dans laquelle les Arméniens jouent un rôle majeur. (fr)
  • Zariadres, Zaré ou Zarer (m. 485) foi um pretendente sassânida ao trono durante o reinado de Balas (r. 484–488). O historiador armênio Lázaro de Parpi é o único a mencionar sua tentativa frustrada de tomar o poder na qual os armênios tiveram um papel importante. Zariadres foi, de acordo com Lázaro de Parpi, o segundo filho de Perozes I (r. 457–484). No entanto, os estudiosos contemporâneos designam-o por unanimidade como o irmão de Balas e, portanto, também de Perozes I. Após a morte de Perozes I e a captura de Cavades I (r. 488-496), seu irmão Balas foi proclamado rei pela nobreza e sacerdotes mazdeístas. Zariadres, seu outro irmão, insatisfeito com esta escolho, elevou-se, com apoio de muitos. Balas foi forçado a lutar e recorreu à Baanes II Mamicônio, com quem veio a fazer a paz; este último enviou a cavalaria armênia comandada por seu sobrinho Gregório Mamicônio, filho de Vasaces, e por Vrem, príncipe de Vanande. Zariadres, derrotado pelos armênios, refugiou-se nas passagens montanhosas, mas foi capturado e "abatido como um animal" em 485. (pt)
