Nebuchadnezzar III

Babylonian rebel leader and pretender to the throne of Babylonia. His proper name was Nidinti-Bēl and he was a zazzaku-official prior to 522. He rose in rebellion against Persian power after the death of Cambyses II, and for a few months was recognized as king in the northern part of Babylonia. He is attested in economic texts from that region between October and December 522. He was defeated by Darius I in battle near Sippar.
