May I add:

 Cyaxares II may be the product of Xenophon's imagination (c. 350 B.C.). He is known to
have  fictionalized his exploits among the Persians. Cyaxares II appears in no other
ancient histories except those after Xenophon. All who believe that Cyaxares II is the
Darius of Dan. 5:31 quote Xenophon and reject Herodotus (c. 475 B.C.).
