The Persian military invaded
They heard about the gold, the teachings and everything sacred
In 525 BC, Cambyses II, ruler of the Persian Empire at the time, and his Persian military invaded Egypt.
(Psammetichus III faced the Persian army at the great frontier fortress of Pelusium eastern gateway into Egypt. The Egyptian forces and their Greek mercenaries were no match. The king fled to Memphis, where he was captured and taken to Susa, the Persian capital. I think you can picture what happened to him.)
