The magi represent a rival clan claiming the right to kingship; their representative Gaumata overturns religious establishments which Darius has to set right; and Darius is a true son of his father Hystaspes, who is known traditionally as the patron of Zoroaster, the introducer of the form of religion that characterised the Achaemenid kings from Darius onwards but not, apparently, Cyrus (see further, Chapter 4).
