Saite Egypt swung, pendulum-like, between the reality of mass immigration, since a resurgent Egypt acted like a magnet to economic refugees, and the recurrent threat of backlash from a native population with proud traditions of its own. Governing such a society was far from easy. Problems came to a head at the end of the reign of Apries ( King for 22 years, strangled by the men of Amasis: Aμασις: Amasis: Amasis: Ruled for 55 years until Cambyses conquered Egypt: Ταχως: Takhos: Djedhor Teos I: King Tachos of Egypt received talents of silver and 50 warships.

  Amasis I., the founder of the XVIIIth dynasty, is famous for his successful wars against the Hyksos princes who still ruled in the north-east of the Delta (see Egypt: History, sect. 1.)

Apries having thus been overthrown, Amasis became king, being of the district of Saás, and the name of the city whence he was is Siuph. Now at the first the Egyptians despised Amasis and held him in no great regard, because he had been a man of the people and was of no distinguished family; but afterwards Amasis won them over to himself by wisdom and not wilfulness. Book 3 Summary. Book 3 resumes the narrative of Persian expansion after the discussion of Egypt in Book 2. In this section, Herodotus describes the Persian king Cambyses’ reign, conquest of Egypt, and descent into madness; the usurpation of the Persian throne by the Magi after Cambyses’ death; and the rise of Darius to power in Persia after a coup d’etat.
