 457BC_WhyCorrect   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
There is a short gap between 404 BC and 403 BC with a couple of minor kings during that gap.  This was apparently due to political situations at the palace.
To begin, the author wishes to show why 444 BC is not the correct date for the beginning of the 70 weeks/years prophecy.  Then the reasons why 457 BC is the correct date will be covered.
There are several flaws in the arguments against 457 BC as the correct date for the fulfillment of the 70 weeks/years prophecy.  These flaws listed here are the common ones the author has run into, but certainly there probably exist other arguments against it.

 Great King of Persia Artakshassa I Artaxerxes
The three kings that followed Xerxes on the throne--Artaxerxes I (465-425 BC), Xerxes II (425-424 BC), and Darius II Ochus (423-404 BC)--were all comparatively weak individuals and kings, and such successes as the empire enjoyed during their reigns were mainly the result of the efforts of subordinates or of the troubles faced by their adversaries.
The main events of his long rule were the war with Sparta that ended with a peace favourable to the Persians; the revolt and loss to the empire of Egypt; the rebellion of Cyrus the Younger, brother of the king; and the uprising known as the revolt of the satraps.

 Lens (optics) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Analogous devices used with other types of electromagnetic radiation are also called lenses: for instance, a microwave lens can be made from paraffin wax.
The earliest records of lenses date to Ancient Greece, with Aristophanes' play The Clouds (424 BC) mentioning a burning-glass (a convex lens used to focus the sun's rays to produce fire).
The writings of Pliny the Elder (23-79) also show that burning-glasses were known to the Roman Empire, and mentions what is possibly the first use of a corrective lens: Nero was known to watch the gladiatorial games through a concave-shaped emerald (presumably to correct for myopia).
