Artaxerxes

ARTAXERXES (ar-ta-zûrk’sēz). A proper name or possibly a title, like Pharaoh or Caesar for several kings of Persia. The name is variously derived by scholars but perhaps “strong king” (Gesenius) is as good as any. Herodotus said it meant “great warrior.” It is the name or title of three Persian kings in the OT.
