New Light on the Cyrus Cylinder
New discoveries related to the Cyrus Cylinder continue to be made more than 130 years after its discovery in the ruins of Babylon in 1879. The ongoing discoveries shed fresh light on the character and concerns of Cyrus. Professor David Stronach, who has worked on and studied this archaeological site, will explore the gardens and monuments of Cyrus. He will also discuss the Oxus Treasure, focusing on a gold armlet in the Cyrus Cylinder exhibition.
