the finkel translation issueDiod/Finkel: There was also, beside the acropolis, the Hanging Garden, as it is called, which was built, not by Semiramis, but by a later Syrian king to please one of his concubines; for she, they say, being a Persian by race and longing for the meadows of her mountains, asked the king to imitate, through the artifice of a planted garden, the distinctive landscape of Persia.?QCR: Tradition affirms that a king of Assyria, reigning in Babylon, executed this work to gratify his queen, who, delighting in forest scenery, persuaded her husband to imitate the beauties of nature by a garden on this imperial scale.?Berossus: This he did to gratify his queen, because she had been brought up in Media, and was fond of a mountainous situation.
