Anzaze was a queen of the Elymais. She appears on coins together with king Kamnaskires III (about 82/81 BC to 75. BC following dates on the coins). They perhaps ruled together as on the coins she is called βασιλίσσης (the Genitive case of queen - βασίλισσα [basílissa]). Furthermore it was not common on Ancient coins that king and queens appear together, again supporting her special status.
