Persian Sassanid (200AD to 600AD) in heavy armour, precursor of the European knights of the Middle Ages. All this heritage was swept away after the islamic conquest of Iran. The Sassanids were Zoroastrians like their predecessors' the Achaemenids and the Parthians, who ruled Iran from 500 BC to 600 AD.

From an image in the Karaburun II tumulus (470BCE), is a scene of a wounded hoplite being confronted by a Lykian infantryman. The Lykian is unarmoured, but carries a traditional aspis for protection, as well as a short spear and long 'knife' as weapons. The hoplite is equipped in the fashion of a tube and yoke, wearing a Corinthian helmet, with his doru snapped, and laying at his side. Illustrated by Richard Scollins.
