Example text

32 Works that seem to contradict this rule are, like Xenophon’s Education of Cyrus, largely fictional, or, like his Memoirs of Socrates, a collection of anecdotes offering something like a character sketch. His Agesilaus is more like a Life but still describes itself as an epainos, an encomium. All these were written in the early fourth century bc. A little later, Satyrus wrote a Life of Euripides, of which we know very little except that it took the form of a dialogue. Most Hellenistic biography is lost, and the writer who was perhaps the founder of the genre, Antigonus of Carystus, was also a writer of wondertales and paradoxography.

Atossa has Darius in the palm of her hand, forces him to marry her and to make her son Xerxes his designated successor. The plot is neat, but can Gaumata be so easily explained away? He is, after all, the subject of a ‘portrait’, prostrate under Darius’ foot, on the cliff face at Bisutun. The information about his social revolution also seems circumstantial, if hardly extensive. Accepting Gaumata’s existence need not entail accepting the folk tale about the magus’ close resemblance to the murdered Bardiya, and the ears.

It looks better without the modern roof. 43 Esther before King Ahasuerus with Haman being sent to the gallows beyond. 44 The Tomb of Xerxes at Naqsh-e-Rustam. Preface This is the first attempt at a serious biography of Xerxes, or any Achaemenid king, since, I believe, Plutarch’s Life of Artaxerxes, written in the second century ad. It grew out of my interest in the figure of Alexander III of Macedon, who overthrew the Achaemenid Persian Empire and demonised the memory of Xerxes to throw into relief his own virtues.
