Middle East[edit]

Asia Minor[edit]

  • Cimmerian forces from Anatolia conquer Sardis and reach the peak of their power. King Gyges of Lydia has spent most of his 28-year reign fighting his southern and western neighbors in an effort to gain suzerainty over all of Western Asia Minor. He has helped the rebellion of Psamtik I, but he receives no support from his erstwhile Assyrian ally Ashurbanipal. Gyges falls in a battle against the Cimmerians under king Tugdamme (approximate date).
  • Ardys II succeeds his father Gyges as the twenty-seventh king of Lydia. During his reign he find payment of tribute to Assyria preferable to rule by the Cimmerians, who will be routed a few decades later.
