Prophet Daniel, α descendant of royal origin, was born in Ano Bethara. He lived in the late 7th and early 6th century, while his many active period was during the Kingdom of Nebuchadnezzar. He had the gift of interpreting dreams and prophesying. He studied the language and wisdom of the Babylonians and became a high rank member in the courtyard of Nebuchadnezzar. Once Nebuchadnezzar had his own golden image and ordered all his official and subjects worship it. Daniel refused and was then thrown into a lion's den, but he came out unharmed. Seeing the miracle, Darius kept Daniel in his court, where he remained and died in deep old age, probably, in Sousa. But once made his own golden image and demanded that all officials and the people worship it. Prophet Daniel’s memory is celebrated on December the 17th.
