Legend of the True Cross - the Queen of Sheba Meeting with Solomon; (c. 1452-66, Fresco, San Francesco, Arezzo, Italy)Solomon (Latin name) or Shlomo (Hebrew: שְׁלֹמֹה, Arabic: سليمان, Sulayman; "peace") was Israel's third king, son of King David, who's "...wisdom was greater than the wisdom of all the men of the East, and greater than all the wisdom of Egypt." -1 Kings 4:30

The names "Shlomo" and "Solomon" are usually associated with the Biblical account of his life.

The First Temple
Solomon's Temple (Hebrew: בית המקדש, transliterated Beit HaMikdash), also known as the First Temple, was, according to the Bible, the first Jewish Temple in Jerusalem. It functioned as a religious focal point for worship and the sacrifices known as the korbanot (see korban) in ancient Judaism. Completed in the 10th century BCE, it was destroyed by the Babylonians in 586 BCE.
