The great Cyrus had the wisdom to impose himself as protector of the old peoples of his empire. It belonged to Darius (522-485 BC) to sponsor a symbolic art of the new imperial ideology, according to which the two master peoples were the federators and guides of all these peoples whose empire assumed the most venerable traditions.

The large palatial complex of Persepolis was particularly significant in this respect. It was organized into two independent sectors: one was public with the throne hall on the terrace from which the provincial delegations appeared, led by the chamberlains alternately Medes and Persians.
The other private sector was a series of residential palaces.

The junction between the two sectors was made up of a palace-hearing room called the Tripylon, where the king received only the nobles, representatives of the Medes and Persians who held fraternally by the hand. The Persians, dressed in their dress of ceremonial dress, joined the Medes in a short dress of horsemen and capped with the rounded bonnet of the mountaineers.
