 The Seal Of King Darius


At the ancient Palace of Persepolis in Iran, recorded on stone is a picture of King Darius (500BC) driving a chariot with two small very refined horses confronting a lion. History shows that at a time a king's fitness to rule his kingdom was judged by his bravery and prowess at killing lions. In King Darius's Persian game park lions were killed by bow and arrow. The agility, acceleration and braveness of his horses facing lions whilst in harness was crucial to his sucess.

King Darius thought so highly of his horses he made a SEAL showing the hunt.
