One clue is a little list that Herodotus inserted in his Histories, in which he states that Deioces "united the Medes and was ruler of the tribes which here follow, namely, the Busae, Paretacenians, Struchates, Arizantians, Budians, and Magians" (1.102).
Herodotus' list can be seen as an attempt to create order in a confused oral tradition about earlier leaders; his description of Median history probably projects back aspects of the later, Achaemenid empire upon a loose tribal federation.
The Persian king also founded a city of his own, Pasargadae, and it is not exaggerated to say that the evolution from tribal society to early state that had started in Media, reached its conclusion in Persis.

Perhaps the Ionian mercenaries then, via their contacts with the Mother country, Greece, introduced to the Jews, the notion that the Medes were the descendants of a Greek king of Athens ?  In Greek myths, the Titan Iapetos, was considered to be the ancestor of all Greeks.
The Greek's knowledge about the Medes, would then, have come about via the Ionian mercenaries serving in Palestine between 640-604 BCE under the Egyptians who "took over" the former Assyrian holdings, they, --the Assyrians that is-- having their hands full fighting revolts amongst Medes, Chaldeans, and Elamites.

It has been held by some that Herodotus confounds the Medes here with the Manda (or Umman-Manda, "hosts of the Manda") of the inscriptions; but these were probably Aryan tribes, possibly of Scythian origin, and the names Mada and Manda may be, after all, identical.
