 Idrieus - WCD (Wiki Classical Dictionary)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-14)
This is the only event of his reign which is recorded to us; but we may infer, from an expression of Isocrates, in 346 BC (To Philip 103), that the friendly relations between him and the Persian king did not long continue: they appear to have come even to an open rupture.
Building activity of Idrieus is attested in Halicarnassus, where he must have finished the Mausoleum (http://www.livius.org/a/turkey/halicarnassus/halicarnassus2.html), and the sanctuary of Labraunda.
Idrieus died of disease in 344 BC, after a reign of seven years, leaving the sovereign power, by his will, to his sister Ada, to whom, according to local custom, he had been married.

It was at this point (late 498-early 497?) that he was informed that the Revolt had spread to Caria.
Marching to meet the rebels, he inflicted two crushing defeats on them, the second (near Labraunda) also involving a Milesian corps sent to assist the Carians.
After this (we do not know how long after, but presumably not soon: perhaps 496?), the Carians caught the Persian army in an ambush near the later Stratonicea and destroyed it, killing Daurises and its other commanders, Amorges and Sisimaces, as well as a Lydian named Myrsus, son of Gyges.

Domingo Gygax also sees him as an illegitimate older son, based on the Mendes stele (CCG 22181), which states that he "carried the name (Ptolemy) of he who had sired him", but, for reasons discussed below, does not attempt to link him with Andros or Labraunda.
