The victorious Emperor Cyrus had a Persian father and Egyptian mother. He was always referred to as a mixed breed mule behind his back. After capturing the city of Lydia, he ordered that Croesus andhis fourteen loyal officers be burnt at stake. The fire was lighted. Croesus called out to the famous philosopher Solon, “You were right Solon.” When Cyrus enquired why he was saying this, Croesus replied, “Solon told me that there is no greater pleasure than death.”
