* Youtab *


Ario Borzin's sister who fought shoulder-to-shoulder with her brother till death against invading Macedonian army. (Wikipedia) - Youtab

Youtab (Persian: یوتاب, flourished 4th century BC) was an ancient Persian noblewoman.

She was the sister of Ariobarzanes, Satrap of Persis. She is notable for fighting alongside her brother against Greek Macedonian King Alexander the Great at the Battle of the Persian Gate in the winter of 330 BC.

Iranian legends recall the exploits of female warrior Youtab who fought ferociously before falling in battle. Hand to hand fighting was fierce, and even unarmed tribal refugees joined the fight against Alexander.
