(Worthy News) – In an archaeological first, the name of King Darius the Great, father of King Ahasuerus of Purim holiday fame, has been discovered in Israel, the Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA) announced Wednesday.

International Media adviser to President Isaac Herzog, Eylon Levy, was visiting the Tel Lachish National Park with a friend in December when they chanced upon a small inscribed potsherd adorned by a brief phrase.
