Bocchus II
King of the eastern Mauri
(->33 BC)


King of the Mauri (east and west), >33 BC[D96]


His capital was at Volubilis.[D96]  He sided with Caesar against Juba II and Massinissa II and was rewarded with the western part of Massinissa's kingdom.[K7A]  Caesar confirmed him as king of his territory.[D96]  He lost his territories after Arabio invaded and regained his father's kingdom in 44 BC.[K7A]  Octavius confirmed him as king of his own territory as well as Bogudes II's after 38 BC.  He had sons, but they probably died in the civil war as they are not mentioned, and he apparently died without an heir.[D96]
