  • Descrição: When Persians and Medes were threatening Babylonia in the east during the mid-6th century BCE, King Nabonidus mysteriously abandoned his famed capital of Babylon for a remote oasis in the western Arabian desert. Contemporary texts, written by Nabonidus' clerical enemies, have been the only evidence of his claimed exile. Now archaeologists have found the first concrete signs that Nabonidus indeed lived in the oasis of Tayma, more than 1000 km to the west of today's Iraq, and they hope also to uncover why this obscure oasis played such a pivotal role in history.
