BALTASAR ALAMOS DE BARRIENTOS (1555-1640), Spanish scholar, was born at Medina del Campo in 1555. His friendship with Antonio Perez caused him to be arrested in 1590 and imprisoned for nearly thirteen years. His Tdcito espanol ilustrado con aforismos (Madrid, 1614) is the only work which bears his name, but he is probably the author of the Discurso del gobierno ascribed to Perez. Through the influence of Lerma (to whom the Tdcito is dedicated) and of Olivares, he subsequently attained high official position. See L'Art de gouverner, ed. J. M. Guardia (Paris, 1867); P. J. Pidal, Historia de iris alterations de Aragon en el reinado de Felipe II. (Madrid, 1862), vol. iii. pp. 29-3o; A. Perez, Relaciones (Geneva, 1654), pp. 86-88.
