USS Buchanan, destroyer number 484, was one of the highest decorated ships of the US fleet in WW2 with total of 16 battle stars. Although it participated in many battles and operations on Pacific, it has never been really damaged by enemy fire. Still, she was damaged several times, first due to friendly fire (Oct '42), then she ran aground on Guadalcanal coast (Mar '43), then collided with anouther US ship (July '43) and finally was damaged by typhoon (Dec '44). At the end of war, DD-484 was sold to Turkey who didn't leave a scratch on her for almost 30 years.

Darius I, also known as Darius the Great, king of Persia, died in 486 BC, but honestly, who cares?

Siddhartha Gautama died in 486 BC too. Still not exactly interesting. So... aha!



The weight of 486 average cotton balls is equal to the weight of average male adult cottontop tamarin.  
Seriously.

487 is the number of the MS Dresden Codex 487, which is a German fencing manual created in the early 1500s. The manuscript is a compilation text consisting of treatises on a variety of martial topics, by several different masters who stood in the tradition of famous german fencing master Johannes Liechtenauer.

Dar al Gani 489 is the name of meteorite found in 1997 in Libya. It belongs to Martian shergottite type. It’s easy to explain what shergottite is, but it sounds better if left unexplained.

491 sin is one sin too many.
Because when St.Pete asked Jesus how many times should we forgive, Jesus said: “Seventy times seven”.
My fuse is so much shorter than that.

Although it seems there are lot of options for 494, being a nice palindrome number, my pick would be year 494 BC, when The Battle of Lade was fought, and that is naval battle which occurred during the Ionian Revolt. It was fought between an alliance of the Ionian cities (joined by the Lesbians) and the Persian Empire of Darius the Great, and resulted in a decisive victory for the Persians which all but ended the revolt. Although victorious, Darius vowed to punish Athens and Eretria for their support of the revolt and decided to start preparing for a campaign to conquer the whole of Greece, a campaign that resulted in legendary Marathon Battle, Battle of Thermopilae and Battle of Salamis.

In 495 BC, Cerdic of Wessex, and his son Cynric, land somewhere on the south coast of Britannia and their followers create what becomes the Kingdom of Wessex.
