Afterwards, Cambyses slew this Smerdis; (but) when Cambyses slew Smerdis, it was not known unto the people that Smerdis was slain. Thereupon Cambyses went to Egypt. When Cambyses had departed into Egypt, the people became disloyal, and the lie grew in the land, in Persia and Media, and in the other provinces.

(Persian i 35b) Proclaims Darius, the king: Afterwards, (there) was a man, a Magian, Gaumāta by name, - he rebelled from Paisiyāuvādā (there is) a mountain called Arakadri, from there. In the month Viyaxna fourteen days had passed, when he rebelled. He lied to the people, saying: “I am Smerdis, who (is) the son of Cyrus, the brother of Cambyses.” Then all the people became rebellious against Cambyses (and) they went over to him, Persia and Media, and the other lands. He seized the kingship; in the month Garmapada nine days had passed, then he seized the kingship. After that, Cambyses died his own death.

(Persian i 43b) Proclaims Darius, the king: The kingship, which Gaumāta, the Magian, took away from Cambyses, had of old belonged to our family. After that Gaumāta, the Magian, took from Cambyses Persia and Media, and the other provinces; he took (them and) made them his own, he became king.

(Persian i 48b) Proclaims Darius, the king: There was no man, neither a Persian or a Mede, nor one of our own dynasty, who could take the kingship from that Gaumāta, the Magian. The people feared him exceedingly, (for) he tended to slay many people who had known Smerdis previously. For this reason did he slay them, (because he thought) “lest they know that I am not Smerdis, son of Cyrus.” There was none who dared to speak anything against Gaumāta, the Magian, until I came. Then I prayed to Ahuramazdā; Ahuramazdā brought me help. In the month Bâgayâdiš ten days had passed, when I, with a few men, slew that Gaumāta, the Magian, and the men who were his chief followers. (There is) a stronghold called Sikayauvati, (and) a district called Nisāya in Media, - there I slew him; I dispossessed him of the kingship. By the favour of Ahuramazdā I became king; Ahuramazdā granted me the kingdom.

(Persian i 61b) Proclaims Darius, the king: The kingdom that had been taken away from our family, I re-established it, I put it (back) in its place. As (they were) before, I made the temples which Gaumāta, the Magian, had destroyed. I restored to the people the pastures and herds and the household slaves, and the houses which Gaumāta, the Magian, had taken away from them. I restored the people to their place, the people of Persia, and Media, and the other lands. Just as (it was) before, I restored that which (had been) taken away. By the favour of Ahuramazdā I did this; I laboured until I had re-established our house in its place, as before; by the favour of Ahuramazdā, I laboured so that Gaumāta, the Magian, did not make our house destitute.

(Persian i 72b) Proclaims Darius, the king: After I had slain Gaumāta, the Magian, there (was) a man named Āçina, the son of Upadarama, - he rebelled in Elam, and he spoke thus to the people: “I am king in Elam.” Thereupon the people of Elam became rebellious, and they went over to that Āçina: he became king in Elam. And a man, a Babylonian, named Nadintabaira, the son of Ainaira, - he rebelled in Babylon; he lied to the people, saying: “I am Nebuchadnezzar, the son of Nabonidus.” Thereupon the people of Babylonia, all of them, went over to that Nadintabaira, and Babylonia rebelled. He seized the kingship in Babylonia.

(Persian i 83b) Proclaims Darius, the king: Then I marched to Babylonia against that Nadintabaira, who called himself Nebuchadnezzar. The army of Nadintabaira held the Tigris; it took its stand there, and on account of the waters (the river) was fordable only by boat. Thereupon I placed (part of) the army on (inflated) skins, others I made dromedary-borne, for others I brought horses. Ahuramazdā brought me aid; by the favour of Ahuramazdā we crossed the Tigris. There I utterly defeated that army of Nadintabaira. In the month Ātpiyādiya twenty-six days had passed, when we fought the battle.
