printed description: "(II. Chron., xviii:1.)--'Now Jehoshaphat had riches and honor in abundance, and joined affinity with Ahab.' Jehoshaphat succeeded Asa as king of Judah in 914 B.C. Ahab succeeded Omri as king of Israel in 918 B.C. In B.C. 912 an alliance was made between Jehoshaphat and Ahab. About the same time Megacles was the chief archon of Athens, and it was during this period that the Eupatrids arose in open revolt and besieged the Acropolis in Athens. Illustrating this contemporaneous Greek history we give a picture of the Agora temple in Athens which stands just beneath the Acropolis on the side of the north wall, and is doubtless in the very neighborhood of the revolt led by Cylon. Cylon was of the highest rank and position, and a man of great wealth who suddenly appeared in arms against the Athenian government. It is interesting thus to see what was taking place in Greece at the time Ahab and Jehoshaphat ruled in Judah and in Israel."
