Room Iran and the Persian Empire during the Achaemenian Period

Sully wing - Ground floor

This room contains for the most part panels of polychrome glazed brick from the palace of Darius I in Susa (in modern-day Iran), built during the late 6th and early 5th centuries BC. The enormous capital in the center of the room crowned one of thirty-six tall columns in the audience hall (apadana).
