Meaning of the baby name BEL-ZIKIR-ISKUN.


BEL-ZIKIR-ISKUN.  A King of Assyria.  He succeeded Assurbanipal, but his relationship to him is not known.  He was simultaneously attacked by Phraortes king of Media, Psammetichus king of Egypt, and the revolted chiefs of Babylon.  By the aid, however, of his general, Nabopolassar, he defeated the Elamites and subdued the Babylonians, whilst himself repulsed the Medes at the battle of Rhages, where their king was slain.  The Medes soon recovered their position, and the king of Assyria was only delivered from his foes by an incursion of the savage Scythians into Media, and afterwards into Assyria, where they allied themselves with him for a time, but after his death, and indeed at the close of his reign, plundered and ravaged the country.  Bel-zikir-iskun was succeeded by Assur-ebil-ili, the son of Assurbanipal. (An Archaic Dictionary, Cooper, 1876).
