        It is said that Croesus, King of Lydia, consulted the Oracle of Delphi and was told that if his army crossed the Halys, he would destroy a great empire. What he was not told is that it would be his own empire. Upon his first defeat, Croesus retreated to Sardis to rebuild his army, only to find himself soon surrounded by the Persian army. * Croesus ignores warning [65] * Cr invades Syrian Cappadocia & is captured by Cyrus {} [] * Tale of Scythians feeding Cyaxeres boy's meat and fleeing to Lydia [67] * Sardis captured [72], Croesus' dumb son speaks out to save his father [73] * Cyrus spares Croesus life when he calls out "Solon" on the burning pyre and tells his story [73].

      - Ancient Sardis & Lydia. See more ideas about Ancient civilizations, Cyrus the great and European people pins. A solider name Hyroedes saw that is was vulnerable and as Cyrus had offered a reward to the first man to successfully scale the fortified wall of Sardis, he went for it, made it up, others followed, and he caused the fall of Sardis and the capture of Croesus by Cyrus, fulfilling the prophecy that an empire would fall.

        Thirsty for treasures anew, Croesus turned West and sieged the great city of Ephesus, the greatest metropolis of the Greeks in Asia, and after a time, took the city. By so doing, Croesus became the first foreign foe to subject the Greeks to tribute. Wealth flowed into the coffers of Sardis, the great capital city of Lydia. Herodotus counts by generations, for example the kings of the Mermnads dynasty, ruling from c - BC in Lydia, form the background for Book 1: Gyges, Ardys, Sadyattes II, Alyattes and finally, his son Croesus who we look at in some detail.
