Cyrus Cylinder

Four Kings of Persia are mentioned in Ezra 4:5-7: Cyrus, Darius, Xerxes, and Artaxerxes. These same four are mentioned in the writings of the Greek historians Herodotus and Thucydides. And archaeologists have found their ancient reigns well attested. In the latest issue of ARTIFAX magazine, professor Mike Caba connects these threads of ancient history.
