She later married Onnes, one of the generals of Ninus. Atthe battle of Bactra, Ninus was so filled with admiration for thecourage and skill Semiramis displayed, he resolved to have her ashis wife and queen. He offered to give Onnes his own daughterSosana in exchange for Semiramis but Onnes refused. Ninus thenthreatened to destroy Onnes by gouging his eyes out, whereupon infear, despair and agony, he surrendered to his kings demand andcommited suicide.
