The Babylonian Captivity with Map



The City of Persepolis in the Persian Empire



Persepolis was another royal city of the Persian Empire. It was here that King Darius I moved his capital to when he ascended the throne in 522 B.C. He built a splendid palace at Persepolis on a forty foot high stone platform. It is interesting that out of the 72 columns 13 are still standing.


It was located about 300 miles southeast of Susa. The Jews in captivity had influence in this city.
