In the Old Testament Book of Daniel Darius the Mede is mentioned () as ruler after the slaying of the “Chaldean king” Belshazzar. Daniel is supposed to have flourished during the reigns of Darius and of Cyrus “king of Persia” (Daniel), to be identified with Cyrus the Great (see CYRUS iii; B.C.E.).

Darius the Mede stands out in Scripture as a Gentile ruler who glorified the God of Israel because of the prophet Daniel’s faithfulness. Daniel had been taken to Babylon as a mere youth in B.C., during Nebuchadnezzar’s first siege of Jerusalem. Daniel's writings cover the Israeli Captivity under Babylon and also the Mede-Persian Empires.

He served under several kings and was always favored for his wisdom, which he attributed to God. Daniel 2 In chapter 2, Nebuchadnezzar dreams of a statue made. In accordance with Daniel’s Darius, the Bible records in other places that the king of Persia had a double name.

“The identification of Cyrus the Persian king with Darius the Mede accords well with the prophecies of Isaiah () and Jeremiah (, 28), who saw in the Medes the conquerors of Babylon.

(Nebuchadnezzar and Belshazzar) and one Persian king (Darius the Mede–also known as Cyrus). The second half of the Book of Daniel (chapters 7 through 12) opens with a dramatic vision given by YHWH to Daniel which maps out the next six centuries of ancient near-eastern history.

Oxford: Blackwell, pp Apparently the author of Daniel is following an apocalyptic view of history, linked to prophecy (cf. Is –19; Jer28–30), according to which the Medes formed the second of four world kingdoms preceding the messianic times; see note on Dn – The character of Darius the Mede has probably been modeled on that of the Persian.
