Artaxerxes

Additional Links

Artaxerx'es. (the great warrior).

1. The first Artaxerxes is mentioned in Ezra 4:7 and appears identical with Smerdis, the Magian impostor and pretended brother of Cambyses, who usurped the throne B.C. 522, and reigned eight months.

2. In Nehemiah 2:1, we have another Artaxerxes. We may safely identify him with Artaxerxes Macrocheir or Longimanus, the son of Xerxces, who reigned B.C. 464-425.
