I find it interesting that about the same time in history, the Greek world on the one hand, and the Judaic world on the other, were having entirely different experiences with the Persian Empire.  

After conquering Babylon, the Persians allowed the Babylonian exiles c. 530-  to return, and Persia instituted a policy of religious freedom in its Empire, culminating with the establishment of the Second Temple.  The Temple probably wasn't rebuilt until c. 585.
While in 490 and 480 BC (Marathon and Thermopyle/Salamis), Persia tried to invade Greece, and Greek propaganda present the Persians as Asian despots threatening Greek independence.  The Greeks never minded wars amongst themselves.  And truth be told, some Greek powers favored the Persian side (Delphi).

But the Jewish experience of the Persians was good, the Greek was bad or at least, framed in a negative light.
