Sphinx V - Legends of History: Nebukadnezar - I am Incomparable

Travellers have always been fascinated by the ancient weather-beaten stone relief over 2,000 years old in the Lebanese town of Wadi Brisa; it shows a life-size figure wearing the crown of a Babylonian king killing a lion. It is a portrait of one of the most famous and at the same time notorious rulers of all time. Even today, over 2,580 years after his death, his name is as well-known as that of Julius Caesar and Alexander the Great: Nebuchadnezzar, the legendary king of Babylon from 604 to 562 BC.
