The Last Days of Antiochus Epiphanes
- King Anti'ochus was going through the upper provinces when he heard that Elyma'is in Persia was a city famed for its wealth in silver and gold.
- "Its temple was very rich, containing golden shields, breastplates, and weapons left there by Alexander, the son of Philip, the Macedonian king who first reigned over the Greeks. "
- "So he came and tried to take the city and plunder it, but he could not, because his plan became known to the men of the city "
