Hastings' Dictionary of the Bible
ACHMETHA . The Ecbatana of the Greeks and Romans, modern Hamadan . It was the capital of Media (in Old Persian HaghmatÃ¢na ). It is mentioned but once in the canonical books ( Ezra 6:2 ), as the place where the archives of the reign of Cyrus were deposited. It is several times mentioned in the Apocrypha ( 2Ma 9:3 Tob 3:7; Tob 6:7; Tob 14:13 f., Jdt 1:1 ff.).
