Necho I was an ally of the Neo Assyrian Empire (911 BC–609 BC) in its struggle against the remnants of the Hyksos, including the ancestors of the Jews and the Kushites. The Assyrian king, Esarhaddon, began commanding an army to protect Necho, but died before his arrival.
He was succeeded by his son Ashurbanipal (668 – 627 BC), the grandson of Sennacherib. Ashurbanipal sent an army against the Kushites in 667 BC and remained in his capital at Nineveh and defeated Taharqa king of the 25th family near Memphis, who fled south. Ashurbanipal supported King Nacho with Assyrian soldiers to protect the lower Kmt from the Kushites
After the death of the Kushite Taharqa in 664 BC and his defeat, his successor, Tantmani, invaded the lower Kmt again with a large army. In Memphis he defeated the Kemites and killed King Necho in battle and Psamtik I took refuge in Assyria.
Ashurbanipal sent another army south of Greek soldiers and again succeeded in defeating the Kushites north of Memphis. Tantmani fled to Kush and did not threaten Kmt again. Psamtik I and the Assyrians shattered the remnants of the Kushites severely. The Assyrians were given gifts from war spoils taken from Kushites
The Assyrian Kmtian cooperation continued and after Psamtik I liberated Kmt he maintained friendly relations with the Assyrians. After the liberation of Thebes permanently from the Kushites, Kmt was united once under a king of Sau / Sais.
Psamtik I son of Necho ruled from 664 to 610 BC, the son of Sais and the pride of Lower Kmt.
Jewish sources claim that he was against the Assyrians while the fact is that the Assyrians were his allies and helped him to establish close ties with the Greeks to counter the danger of the Kushites from the south and encouraged many Greeks to settle in Kmt and established settlements for them and encouraged them to join the quantum army.
Trade between Egypt and Greece was also active at that time, and Sais was an important trade center punched with Greece and the Mediterranean countries. So the role of the Greeks at that time was that of a friend
Most probably, the Psamtik I statue which was discovered in 2017 totally fragmented and buried was brought from Sais to be destroyed in Matariya, near Heliopolis, by Persians and Jews who are Hyksos descendants to erase his great history and achievements against the remnants of Hyksos and their offshoots.
