rus was in B. C. 560-559, the accession of Deioces would fall in B. C. 710-709, which is confirmed by Diodorus (2.32), who says that, "according to Herodotus, Cyaxares [meaning Deioces] was chosen king in the second year of the 17th Olympiad." (B. C. 711-710.) It also agrees with what may be inferred from Scripture, and is expressly stated by Josephus (J. AJ 10.2), that the Medes revolted after the destruction of the army of Sennacherib, and the death of that king. (B. C. 711.) Moreover, the LyB. C. 711.) Moreover, the Lydian dynasty of the Mermnadae is computed by Herodotus to have lasted 170 years, down to the taking of Sardis in B. C. 546. It therefore began in B. C. 716. Now, it may be inferred, with great probability, from the statements of Herodotus, that the Heracleidae, who preceded the Mermnadae in Lydia, were Assyrian governors. If so, here is another reason for believing that the great Assyrian empire was broken up in consequence of the destruction of its army under Sennacherib. The small difference
tury before the Christian era. They Are mentioned in the Jewish records. The So, king of Egypt, with whom Hosea, king of Israel, made an alliance about B. C. 722 (2 Kings, 17.4), was in all probability the same as the second king of the dynasty, Sebichus; * So is in Hebrew which may have been pronounced originally Sova or Seva, and which would then bear a still stronger resemblance to Sebichus. and the Tirhakah, king of the Ethiopians, who was preparing to make war against Sennacherib, in B. C. 711 (Is. 37.9), is evidently the same as the Taracus of Manetho, as has been already remarked. Herodotus speaks of Sethon as king of Egypt at the time of Sennacherib's invasion [SETHON]; but it is evident that the Ethiopian dynasty must have ruled at least over Upper Egypt at this time, for we can hardly refer the statement of Isaiah to an Ethiopian king at Meroe. The name of Sabacon is not found on monuments, as Lepsius has shown, though the contrary is stated by most modern writers. We fin
bus is the Sennacherib * Sennacherib, which is the form familiar to us from the English version, comes from the Septuagint (*Sennaxhri/b). The Hebrew is Sancherib (). In Josephus it is *Senaxh/ribos, in Herodotus *Sanaxa/ribos. of the Scriptures, and the destruction of the Assyrians at Pelusium is evidently only another version of the miraculous destruction of the Assyrians by the angel of the Lord, when they had advanced against Jerusalem in the reign of Hezekiah (2 Kings, xviii. xix. and particularly 19.35; 2 Chronicles, xxxii.; Isaiah, xxxvi. xxxvii). According to the Jewish records, this event happened in B. C. 711. Herodotus speaks as if Sethon were king of all Egypt at this time; but we have shown in the article SABACON, that Upper Egypt at least was governed by the Ethiopian Taracus or Tirhakah, who, as we learn from Isaiah, was ready to march against Sennacherib. The name of Sethon does not occur in Manetho, and it is probable that he only reigned over a part of Lower Egypt.
