Persepolis Persian Soldiers

Dorsa Salehi

     Persepolis, literally meaning "city of Persians", was the ceremonial capital of the Achaemenid Empire (ca. 550–330 BCE). Persepolis is located in Shiraz, Iran. The earliest remains of Persepolis date back to 515 BCE. Darius the Great built the greatest palace at Persepolis on the western side. This palace was called the Apadana.
      These earrings made with brass were inspired by ancient Persian soldiers on the walls of Apadana.
