Edinburgh University Press

The reign of six Achaemenid kings is related. Succeeding each other feature Artaxerxes I, Xerxes II, Sogdianus, Darius II, Artaxerxes II, and Artaxerxes III. Amongst others attention is paid to the revolt of Cyrus the Younger, supported by a Greek mercenary force, against his brother Artaxerxes II and the role Queen Atossa, the mother of both Artaxerxes II and Cyrus the Younger, played during the occurrences. The relation between the Persian rulers and several Greek poleis is another important element in the narrative. The revolt of several satraps is also discussed as well as the secession of Egypt and the efforts of Artaxerxes III to subdue the country, together with its Phoenician allies, foremost of all the city of Sidon, again.

Keywords:   Artaxerxes I, Xerxes II, Sogdianus, Darius II, Artaxerxes II, Artaxerxes III, Cyrus the Younger, Atossa, Sidon, Egypt
