The Battle of Thymbra (547 BCE) was the decisive engagement between Cyrus II (the Great, r. c. 550-530 BCE) of Persia and Croesus (r. 560-546 BCE), King of Lydia. The Persian victory, achieved in part by the use of camels, ended the Kingdom of Lydia. (From the History of the Nations by Walter Hutchinson)
