Cilicia, Persian Empire, c. 351 - 338 B.C.
|Cilicia|, |Cilicia,| |Persian| |Empire,| |c.| |351| |-| |338| |B.C.|, Artaxerxes III, was King of Kings of the Achaemenid Empire from 359/58 to 338 B.C. Before ascending the throne, he was a satrap and commander of his father's army. Artaxerxes came to power after one of his brothers was executed, another committed suicide, the last murdered, and his father, Artaxerxes II died. Soon after becoming king, Artaxerxes murdered all of the royal family to secure his place as king. He started two major campaigns against Egypt. The first campaign failed, and was followed up by rebellions throughout the western part of his empire. During the second, Artaxerxes finally defeated Nectanebo II, the Pharaoh of Egypt, bringing that country back into the Persian fold after six decades. In Artaxerxes' later years, Philip II of Macedon tried to convince the Greeks to revolt against the Achaemenid Empire. With Artaxerxes support, the city of Perinthus resisted a Macedonian siege.
