Chapter Summary

This chapter provides articles that represent the results of the latest research into the relationship between the 'imperial' culture of the Achaemenids and local traditions. The book makes it possible to draw important conclusions about the relative significance of local elements on the one hand and 'imperial' culture on the other, in the western margins of the Achaemenid Empire. The article by S. Sajjadi presents readers with the results of interesting research, which has been going on at the opposite, eastern edge of that empire, in Sistan. The articles published in this book shed new light on the question of relations between the centre and the outlying areas in the culture of the empire of the Achaemenids and the regions adjoining it.

Keywords: Achaemenids; imperial culture; local traditions; Sistan
