The citadel at Persepolis was a pinnacle of Achaemenid architecture and art, begun under the reign of the Great King Darius in about 515 BCE. We examine the possibility that the architecture of Persepolis might have influenced monuments on mainland Greece, specifically the Stoa of the Athenians at Delphi, located along the Sacred Way in the sanctuary of Apollo at Delphi.

Abstract: The relationship between people and things is a crucial avenue of investigation in understanding past cultures. While the social aspects of material culture have come under closer scrutiny over the past few decades, what remains largely unexplored are the reasons why people collect archaeological artifacts. An examination of the social contexts and the consequences of consuming material culture is integral to a fuller understanding of archaeology in the eastern Mediterranean.
