Achaemenid luxury toreutic from the region would appear to be largely a product of local workshops rather than imported from the Persian heartlands, as witnessed by the Lydian and Phrygian inscriptions on the vessels (Melikian-Chirvani; Özgen and Öztürk, cat. 42, 60, 71); and the decorative syntax is occasionally ungrammatical in the visual language of the Persian imperial centers (Özgen and Öztürk, cat.

P16828), probably through the intermediary of the shape in silver in 4th- and 3rd-century Macedon, though the type started be-fore Alexander’s conquest (Rotroff, pp. Production of the “von Mercklin” class rhyta in more than one center in Greece in the 4th and 3rd centuries probably reflects a metalware intermediary (Ebbinghaus and Jones). Images from Persian imperial art caused Athenian vase-painters to re-envision episodes from Greek myth or even to re-cast Greek myth into a foreign ambience. In about the mid-5th century, a number of kings from Greek mythology adopted the trappings of Persian monarchy, following the model of Achaemenid throne scenes.
