  Cyrus the Younger - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Cyrus the Younger, son of Darius II and Parysatis, was a Persian prince and general.
Cyrus managed very cleverly to gather a large army by beginning a quarrel with Tissaphernes, satrap of Caria, about the Ionian towns; he also pretended to prepare an expedition against the Pisidians, a mountainous tribe in the Taurus, which was never obedient to the Empire.
Cyrus had 10,400 Greek hoplites and 2500 peltasts, and besides an Asiatic army under the command of Ariaeus, for which Xenophon gives the absurd number of 100,000 men; the army of Artaxerxes he puts down at 900,000.

 CYRUS - Definition
The "first year of Cyrus" (Ezra 1:1) is not the year of his elevation to power over the Medes, nor over the Persians, nor the year of the fall of Babylon, but the year succeeding the two years during which "Darius the Mede" was viceroy in Babylon after its fall.
In October, Cyrus himself arrived, and proclaimed a general amnesty, which was communicated by Gobryas to "all the province of Babylon," of which he had been made governor.
Cyrus now assumed the title of "king of Babylon," claimed to be the descendant of the ancient kings, and made rich offerings to the temples.

At Tarsus Cyrus and his army halted for twenty days; the soldiers 1 refusing to advance further, since the suspicion ripened in their minds, that the expedition was in reality directed against the king; and as they insisted, they had not engaged their services for that object.
Cyrus sprang from his carriage and donned his corselet; then leaping on to his charger's back, with the javelins firmly clutched, he passed the order to the rest, to arm themselves and fall into their several ranks.
In this courtly training Cyrus earned a double reputation; first he was held to be a paragon of modesty among his fellows, rendering an obedience to his elders which exceeded that of many of his own inferiors; and next he bore away the palm for skill in horsemanship and for love of the animal itself.

 Cyrus the Younger
Cyrus the Younger is the Persian prince for whom fought the Ten Thousand Greek soldiers, whose story is told by Xenophon, one of their generals, in the Anabasis.
In 407, his father named him Satrap of the Ionian provinces in replacement of Tissaphernes, whose policy of frequent change of alliances between Sparta and Athens in the ongoing Peloponesian War was not to his taste (Tissaphernes had lately been convinced by Alcibiades to switch side and support Athens).
Despite warnings by Tissaphernes that Cyrus was plotting against him, Artaxerxes was convinced by his mother Parysatis, who prefered Cyrus, to spare the life of his brother and let him go back in his Satrapy.

But Tissaphernes was unwilling to take action and tried to achieve his aim by astute and often perfidious negotiations; Alcibiades persuaded him that Persia's best policy was to keep the balance between Athens and Sparta, and rivalry with his neighbor Pharnabazus of Hellespontic Phrygia still further lessened his energy.
When, therefore, in 408 the king decided to support Sparta strenuously, Tissaphernes was removed from the generalship and limited to the satrapy of Caria, whereas Lydia and the conduct of the war were entrusted to Cyrus the Younger.
On the downfall of Athens, Cyrus and Tissaphernes both claimed jurisdiction over the Ionian cities, most of which acknowledged Cyrus as their ruler; but Tissaphernes took possession of Miletus, where he was attacked by Cyrus, who gathered an army under this pretence with the purpose of using it against his brother Arta-xerxes II.

 Bryn Mawr Classical Review 2002.06.10
Because Cyrus did not also speak of learning to be a good man, Nadon detects 'a real difference of opinion' between father and son (165): 'he does not share Cambyses' opinion as to the difficulty or importance of becoming "truly good and noble" himself'.
Cyrus responds to the thrust of the point: indeed, ruling well is very difficult.
An example: although Cyrus would seem to have been reconciled to his uncle Cyaxares at 5.5.36-7, the 'true nature' of his attitude towards his relative and Media as a whole is revealed, 'if indirectly', in his bestowal of Media as a satrapy upon his son Tanaoxares reported much later in the text (8.7.11).
