Xerxes' exploits are famous, but what about Irdabama, a successful landowner who controlled her own wine and grain business?

By approaching the subject from a near eastern perspective, and thoroughly re-examining the Greek sources, This book is the first to reveal the fascinating picture of women and their economic and political importance in the Persian empire.
