Landmarks in the history of the place

Medes revolt against Assyrians, 709 BC

The place was conquered by:

Scythians

The Scythians, then, ruled Asia for twenty-eight years: and the whole land was ruined because of their violence and their pride, for, besides exacting from each the tribute which was assessed, they rode about the land carrying off everyone's possessions. Most of them were entertained and made drunk and then slain by Cyaxares and the Medes: so thus the Medes took back their empire and all that they had formerly possessed. (Herodotus, The Histories 1.104,1 - 1.106)
