IV-V cc. BC. The Persian warriors’ shields were Assyrian ones – big, round, metal, leather or wicker. Royal guards had wooden shields covered with leather, with a metal plate in the center. They were similar to the Boeotian shields: both had the shape of violin.
The warrior is in a Persian and Median gown with colored lacings and embroideries. There is a sword “acinaces” on the belt. Quiver and bowcase are on his back. He is armored with a shield.
