3 Cary, M., Denniston, J.D., Duff, J. Wight, Nock, A.D., Ross, W.D. and H.H. Scullard The Oxford Classical Dictionary
Oxford: Clarendon Press 1950 Reprint of 1949 edition Publisher's blue cloth, no dust jacket V.g. No Jacket 
V.g., cover sl. abraded, sl. foxing to end papers only, internally unshaken and unworn. A standard work of reference for classicists, with terse but comprehensive descriptions and well annotated with sources and cross-references.

Achaemenid kings of ancient Persia are sadly given a somewhat perfunctory treatment. xx, 971 pp. As this is a heavy book, please ask for a transport quotation when ordering.
