      The Bible says King Solomon held sway over an area stretching from Egypt to modern-day Iraq. His father, David, was the famous leader who united the tribes and led them in a series of conquests that put Israelite soldiers on the banks of the Euphrates River, the site of the most powerful cities in the ancient world, including Babylon and Ur.   There have been searches in the Middle East that have suggested copper mines in Israel or Jordan may be associated with King Solomon, but as far as I can tell these reports postdate the book and are more a case of trying to pin archaeological sites to a well-known name. Solomon (/ ˈ s ɒ l ə m ə n /; Hebrew: שְׁלֹמֹה, Shlomoh), also called Jedidiah (Hebrew יְדִידְיָהּ Yedidyah), was, according to the Hebrew Bible, Old Testament, Quran, and Hadiths, a fabulously wealthy and wise king of the United Kingdom of Israel who succeeded his father, King David. The conventional dates of Solomon's reign are about to BCE, normally given in Father: David.
