Little is known about Sariakos, other than that he was a king who struck coins and was mentioned in an inscription found in Bulgaria. He has been given a variety of dates, all basically in the 2nd century BC (c.179/168-150 ?), but others place him towards the end of the century (and others have dated him up into the 3rd century).
