' PERSIAN EMPIRE '500 B.C


The Achaemenid Empire or Achaemenid Persian Empire (Persian: هخامنشیان IPA: [haxamaneshian]) (559–330 BC) was the first of the Persian Empires to rule over significant portions of Greater Iran. At the height of its power, encompassing approximately 7.5 million square kilometers, the Achaemenid Empire was territorially the largest empire of classical antiquity. It spanned three continents, including territories of modern Afghanistan, Pakistan, central Asia, Asia Minor, Thrace, most of the Black Sea coastal regions[citation needed], Iraq, northern Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Israel, Lebanon, Syria, and all significant population centers of ancient Egypt as far west as Libya. It is noted in western history as the foe of the Greek city states in the Greco-Persian Wars, for freeing the Israelites (Jews) from their Babylonian captivity, and for instituting Aramaic as official language.
Cyrus II the Great ( Kuruš ) set the standards of a benevolent conqueror by issuing the Cyrus Cylinder, the first charter of human rights. [link]
