Glazed brick relief panel Achaemenid Persian, late 6th century BC from Susa, south-west Iran. From the palace of Darius I, ruler of the largest empire in antiquity. This panel is made of polychrome glazed bricks which were found in a courtyard of the palace built by the Persian king Darius I (522-486 BC). It was part of a larger frieze depicting rows of guards, perhaps the 'immortals' who made up the king's personal bodyguard.
