An Arab. The Arabs were never completely subdued by the Persians, but those living near Gaza accepted to pay tribute to king Cambyses.
An Arachosian. They lived in the valleys of the rivers Helmand and Tarnak in southern Afghanistan. Notice the tassel.
An Arian, living near the Kara Kum desert. His turban protects him against dust storms.
An Armenian. In front of him you can see a horse's tail - the Armenians paid horses as tribute.
Two Babylonians, offering ceramics and a garment.
A Bactrian, living in northern Afghanistan.
A Cappadocian from eastern Turkey.
A Carian, with the typical round shield (hoplon) that was believed to be a Carian invention.
An Elamite, offering a lion's cub to the great king.
A Gandaran, from the valley of the river Cophen (modern Kabul in Afghanistan/Pakistan), with a buffalo.
An Indian carrying gold. The ancients told lots of tall stories about the proverbial wealth of the Punjab and the valley of the Indus. The Greek researcher Herodotus of Halicarnassus tells one of the most remarkable ones (text), which -no doubt- he had heard from a Persian spokesman.
A Libyan.
A Lydian. Their king Croesus, proverbially rich, was defeated by Cyrus the Great in 547. The two phials may contain gold from the Pactolus river near Sardes.
Two Medes (not on the Apadana relief). They were closely related to the Persians and were in fact the co-rulers of the empire.
A Nubian with an elephant's tusk. To the left, an okapi.
A Parthian, living close to the Salt desert, and protecting his face with a part of his turban.
A Sagartian, living in the area of modern Yazd.
Three Sakâ tigrakhaudâ ('Sacae with pointed hats'). These nomads were living in what is now called Uzbekistan.
A badly damaged Sogdian, from a city like Nautaca or Maracanda (Samarkand), situated along the Silk road.
Two Syrians. The man to the left offers a garment with four tassels and may be a Jew (cf. Deuteronomy 22.12: "Make tassels on the four corners of the cloak you wear").
A Thracian, from what is now Bulgaria and north-eastern Greece. One of Darius' generals subdued them in ca. 514. Together with the Macedonians, they were the only European nations that belonged to the Persian empire.
A Yaunâ (Greek) offering wool.
The most ancient Iranian carpet adorns one of the halls of the "Hermitage" museum in Leningrade.

This carpet which is partly intact was accidentally discovered by Prof. Rodenko, in the border of Moqolestan, a region called "Pazirik", under piles of ice.
This Pazirik carpet was placed in the large sarcophagus (coffin) of a Satrap (Hakhamaneshian governor general, 33~35O BC) near his mummified body. Thus carpet weaving has been common in Iran since at least 25 centuries ago.
The Pazirik carpet was used to cover horses and according to Rodlenko's statement, was made by Mad, or Pars (Hakhamaneshian) artists. The measures of this carpet are 2xl.83 meters, and its exact copy has been reconstructed.
