Thank you for the image, love the name btw. I am pretty sure you know of the Cyrus cylinder and how he liberated the cult of Marduk.

What are the odds that that is NOT a reference to the Babylonian Jews?

Its not, Babylon had fallen into criminal lordship with the King committing many sins and Cyrus was simply enabling his right to rule Babylonia, by claiming that Bel Marduk was on his side as a result.

This is all explained in the text,


"In [Nabonidus's] mind, reverential fear of Marduk, king of the gods, came to an end. He did yet more evil to his city every day; … his [people ................…], he brought ruin on them all by a yoke without relief … [Marduk] inspected and checked all the countries, seeking for the upright king of his choice. He took the hand of Cyrus, king of the city of Anshan, and called him by his name, proclaiming him aloud for the kingship over all of everything"

Cyrus freed the Jews, who never had anything to do with polytheism..
And cult is definitely the wrong word to apply to the Chief Deity of Babylon, who had been that for over 1500 years

13th century Maya codex, long shrouded in controversy, proves genuine

PROVIDENCE, R.I. [Brown University] —The Grolier Codex, an ancient document that is among the rarest books in the world, has been regarded with skepticism since it was reportedly unearthed by looters from a cave in Chiapas, Mexico, in the 1960s.

But a meticulous new study of the codex has yielded a startling conclusion: The codex is both genuine and likely the most ancient of all surviving manuscripts from ancient America.

Stephen Houston, the Dupee Family Professor of Social Science and co-director of the Program in Early Cultures at Brown University, worked with Michael Coe, professor emeritus of archeology and anthropology at Harvard and leader of the research team, along with Mary Miller of Yale and Karl Taube of the University of California-Riverside. They reviewed “all known research on the manuscript,” analyzing it “without regard to the politics, academic and otherwise, that have enveloped the Grolier,” the team wrote in its study “The Fourth Maya Codex.”

Glad to see researchers were able to overcome this case of academic snobbery.
