Xerxes I (813 words)
Xerxes I, was a Persian king (reigned 485 - 465 BC) of the Achaemenid dynasty.
After his accession in October 485 BC he suppressed the revolt in Egypt which had broken out in 486 BC, appointed his brother Achaemenes[?] as henchman (or khshathrapavan, satrap) bringing Egypt under a very strict rule.
This probably was the reason why Xerxes in 484 BC abolished the Kingdom of Babel[?] and took away the golden statue of Bel (Marduk, Merodach), the hands of which the legitimate king of Babel had to seize on the first day of each year, and killed the priest who tried to hinder him.
