Achaemenian Persian Immortal Armor - Ardeshir Radpour

This is a representation of an Achaemenian Persian Immortal wearing the Anatolian style armor often seen in Greek Art.  This particular armor has encorporated some artistic liberties such as Persian Motifs and Zoroastrian motifs carved into the leather.  The Persian Immortals used many different styles of weapons and Shields.  In this case, we see the small round hoplon style shield, made of wood lamenant, covered in fabric, the Immortal is using a Sagaris battle axe and wearing the famous tiara Scythian style headress.  This particular Persian Immortal is representative of those who fought in the Persians Wars of King Darius and King Xerxes.
