by Marcel MEULDER, in Res Antiquae 14, 2017.

Valerius Maximus, by citing one of the executions by which Darius Ochus, Cyrus’ and Artaxerxes’ father, subjects his political opponents, gives a new perspective to the Iranian religion during the last quarter of the fifth century b. C.: Mithra seems afresh present. On the other hand, each of the variant means by which Darius would discard his opponents seems convey each of the four functions which characterize the Indo-european ideology.
