The Royal Guard.

The Royal Guard.
Wish you a beautiful day.
****************************************
Darius the Great built the greatest palace at Persepolis on the western side. This palace was called the Apadana (the root name for modern ایوان ayvān).[14] The King of Kings used it for official audiences. The work began in 515 BC. His son Xerxes I completed it 30 years later.
Two Persepolitan style symmetrical stairways were built on the northern and eastern sides of Apadana to compensate for a difference in level. The external front views of the palace were embossed with carvings of the Immortals, the Kings' elite guards.

Fortunately, we Greeks stopped them from invading Europe during the Persian wars...especially in the battle of Marathon in 490 BC...otherwise Europe would be quite different from what it is today.
