The Persian empire was gigantic, and it was also wealthy. That is why the Greek soldiers considered it a fantastic accomplishment as they conquered and destroyed the Persian empire. Not only were they surprised by what they had accomplished but also by the wealth and the treasuries they found among the Persian leaders.
This exhibition covers a time period between 550 BC and 30 BC. We can see how wealth and luxury was used as political power already back then.
If you want to visit the exhibition, it is recommended to buy your tickets online before arrival.
