Haman Convinces Ahasuerus

Haman Convinces Ahasuerus
Azor masters ca. 1430
illumination (62 × 90 mm) — 15th century
Esther 3:9 - If it please the king, let it be written that they may be destroyed: and I will pay ten thousand talents of silver to the hands of those that have the charge of the business, to bring it into the king's treasuries.
Haman (kneeling) convinces King Ahasuerus (Artaxerxes) that all disobedient people in his kingdom should be killed. Haman does not tell the king that he wants this just to be rid of his rival Mordecai.
By giving his ring to Haman, Ahasuerus acknowledges his consent.
