Mithrobuzanes was satrap of Achaemenid Cappadocia.

Mithrobuzanes (Old Persian: *Miθrabaujanaʰ; Ancient Greek: Μιθροβουζάνης Mithrobouzánēs; died May 334 BC) was a Persian governor (satrap) of Cappadocia in the 4th century BC, during the reign of Darius III. He was probably a son of Ariarathes.[1] As a Persian military commander, he was killed at the Battle of Granicus fighting Alexander the Great.[2][3]

The victorious Alexander appointed Abistamenes in his place.[4][5]
