In the opening paragraph it says Darius was Emperor of Persia from 521 B.C.E. but other places on the same page say 522 B.C.E., i want to use this site for most of my citations for my research but i don’t want people to get confused either. Many if not most of these years were reckoned from spring to spring for a long time and i can understand why someone might want to say 521 B.C.E. just before the spring in terms of our current calendar but i don’t think that is the best way to do it. i didn’t see anything on the page explaining the 521 B.C.E. date over the 522 B.C.E. date either.

Thank you, Andrew, for your comment. I agree with you and will change the 521 to 522 to be consistent.
Thanks again for helping to make NWE a valuable information resource.
