Jacobs & Rollinger (eds.) on Xenophon’s Cyropaedia

BIBLIOGRAPHIA IRANICA: Xenophon’s Cyropaedia. Notice of a New Book: Jacobs, Bruno & Robert Rollinger (eds.). 2019. Ancient Information on Persia Re-assessed: Xenophon’s Cyropaedia. Proceedings of a Conference Held at Marburg in Honour of Christopher Tuplin, December 1-2, 2017. (Classica et Orientalia 22). Wiesbaden: Harrassowitz Verlag.

I am skeptical that Xenophon's work had an "impact of the work in canonical and deuterocanonical books of the Old Testament." But perhaps this book would convince me.
