Stateira I (died circa 332 BC) was the wife of Darius III of Persia of the Achaemenid dynasty. She was known as the most beautiful woman on Earth and, as was the custom for royal Persian women, accompanied her husband while he went to war. It was because of this that she was captured by Alexander the Great after the Battle of Issus, in 333 BC at Issus. Her husband abandoned his entire family at the site as he fled from Alexander, including his mother, Sisygambis, and his daughters Stateira II and Drypteis. Alexander is reported to have treated them with great respect.
Abu Bakr al-Hassan ibn al-Khasib, also al-Khaseb, Albubather in Latin, was a Persian physician and astrologer of the 9th century.
