An Armenian on the East Stairs of the Apadana of Persepolis.             This Armenian carries the other present for the king: a beautiful metal vessel with griffin handles. Similar objects have been found. His turban resembles the Median turbans, although he has the cheek parts tied in his neck.

Like their neighbors, the Medes, the Armenians wear horseman's dresses and cloaks. Their tribute consists of a/o a bridled stallion, which more or less confirms the statement by the Greek geographer Strabo of Amasia that the Armenians paid 20,000 colts.
