Persian Empire, Arados, Phoenicia, c. 400 - 350 B.C.
Cyrus the Great took Phoenicia in 539 B.C. Phoenicia was divided into four vassal kingdoms: Sidon, Tyre, Arwad (Arados), and Byblos. Much of the Phoenician population likely migrated to Carthage and other colonies. When Alexander the Great invaded in 332 B.C., King Strato submitted Arvad without a struggle and sent his navy to aid Alexander in the reduction of Tyre.
