It is reported that Amytis' homesickness for the forested mountains of the Median Empire led to the construction of the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, as Nebuchadnezzar attempted to please her by planting the trees and plants of her homeland. Recent evidence suggests that the garden was more likely built by an Assyrian King Sennacherib in Nineveh.
AMYTIS, Median and Persian female name, attested only in the Greek form A´mytis, which perhaps may reflect (with vowel metathesis) an old Persian *Umati—equivalent to Avestanhumaiti— “having good thought ” 
Āmitis Shahbanū (Persian: آمیتیس شهبانو) was the queen of the Persian Achaemenid Empire and the daughter of Astiak (Shāh of Mād, the Median King), wife of Cyrus the Great (the 1st Persian Emperor and the writer of the first declaration of human rights in the globe, named the Cyrus Cylinder). The name Amitis means "wise friend"
