Two Italian brothers seem to believe so.

Cambyses II's army was reported by Herodotus to have been sent against the oracle of Amun at the Siwa oasis, to serve punishment for its failure to recognise Persian dominion over Egypt.  This articles posits that they took an alternative route to take the enemy by surprise but, ultimately this proved to be their demise when hit by a 'cataclysmic' sandstorm.
