Neo-Babylonian = Armenian?

Nebuchadnezzar IV also known as Arakha, was a self-proclaimed King of Babylon

Arakha (meaning 'crown prince' in Armenian) and he was an Armenian and the son of Haldita ( Chaldee? )

Chaldee are an Armenian people living around the Black Sea

So why would Nebuchadnezzer IV be identified as an Armenian and claim to be the Son of Nabonidus.

Ezra 5:12 ( Is this Nebuchadnezzer IV ? )
Nebuchadnezzar the king of Babylon, the Chaldean

Nabonidus, ruled between 556 BC to 539 BC but is not mention in the Bible, even though he appears on the Cyrus cylinder.

Belshazzar = Nebuchadnezzar IV ?
Dan 5:30 - Belshazzar the king of the Chaldean was slain
Daniel 5:31 - And Darius the Median took the kingdom
- Nebu IV was slain and Darius took the Kingdom in 512 BCE -

Dan 7:1 - Third year of Belshazzar king of Babylon(who is this?)

According to the Book of Ezra & Chronicles, Nebuchadnezzer II ( 605 to 562 BCE )
and Artaxerxes II ( 405 to 358 BCE ) are contemporaries.

That's a 200 year chronological error.

They was a Chaldean astronomer known as 'Kidinnu' , who died in Babylon in 330 BC

The Biblical name Nebuchadnezzar is 'NBV - KDN - AZR ' or in Greek 'Nebou-Xodon-Osor

KDN ( Xodon ) is not 'Kudurri' ( Nabū-kudurri-uṣur )
NBV means Prophet, so 'Prophet Kidinnu' ( NBA KDN )

The Greek geographer Strabo of Amaseia, in Geography 16.1–.6, writes: "In Babylon a settlement is set apart for the local philosophers, the Chaldaeans, as they are called, who are concerned mostly with astronomy; but some of these, who are not approved of by the others, profess to be writers of horoscopes. (There is also a tribe of the Chaldaeans, and a territory inhabited by them, in the neighborhood of the Arabs and of the Persian Gulf, as it is called.) There are also several tribes of the Chaldaean astronomers. For example, some are called Orcheni [those from Uruk], others Borsippeni [those from Borsippa], and several others by different names, as though divided into different sects which hold to various dogmas about the same subjects. And the mathematicians make mention of some of these men; as, for example, Kidenas, Nabourianos and Soudines"
Dan 2:10
Magician, or astrologer, or Chaldean.
Dan 2:2
Then the king commanded to call the magicians, and the astrologers, and the sorcerers, and the Chaldeans for to shew the king his dreams.

Chaldeans are depicted as a type of Magi or Priest and Strabo says 'Chaldeans' were local philosophers concerned with Astronomy.

Dan 2:2
Then the king commanded to call the magicians, and the astrologers, and the sorcerers, and the Chaldeans, for to shew the king his dreams.

Kidinnu died in Babylon in 330 BCE, which coincides with Alexander the Great conquering Persia in 330 BCE, This means the Biblical Cyrus was Alexander the Great , His Asiatic title ' Kurios' confused with 'Kurus' ( Cyrus ).

Alexander had a hairstyle curved like two horns, as did Cyrus. In Daniel 8:6 [we read]: 'and he came to the ram with two horns’
This confusion can be demonstrated in the Jewish literature —e.g. Book of Daniel. It is agreed that Daniel began to prophesy during the time of a Neo-Babylonian king named Nebuchadrezzar [II] and he remained active into the reigns of the early Persians. He was thrown into the lion's den by a king Darius (universally believed to be Darius I), who is said to have inherited the kingdom of Belshazzar, Nabonidus' nephew and acting regent. From this information Daniel is placed in the late 6th century BC. “However, contradicting this date, the writings of Daniel are filled with references to the Macedonians, who are mentioned by name (Dan. 8:21), and to the early Ptolemies and Seleucids, who are mentioned by implication (the latter two are known, respectively, as the 'king of the north' and the 'king of the south' but no biblical authority doubts that the prophet is referring to the Ptolemies and Seleucids). He also refers to the Romans, who send their ships to the aid of one of the kings of the region. (Dan. 11:29-30). This Roman intervention in the Levant is unlikely to have greatly preceded the alliance [that the Romans had] with Ptolemy II, concluded in 273 BC

Isaiah 45:1
Thus saith the LORD to his anointed, to Cyrus (= Alexander the Great ? )
