Example text

In visually representing the inescapable dependency of the polity on the embodied, practical actions of the political community, Achaemenid political thinkers once again intuited a notion of sovereignty as a question not yet settled. The second unexplored aspect of this visual trope that merits consideration (before we move closer once again into xšaça‘s semantic orbit) is the considerable prominence accorded to the material object that makes possible the entailments of imperial sovereignty and the association of deity, dynast, and demos.

It is with this in mind that in chapter 1 I dwell further on the word “satrapy,” embarking on a project to wrest it from both the opinion pages of the broadsheets and the obscure remove of ancient studies. Through winding dissection of language, text, and image, that chapter probes the complex bearings of a word that reverberated across various spheres of ancient Persian thought. I offer neither a complete analysis of Achaemenid political philosophy, nor a thorough account of Zoroastrian (or more accurately Avestan) religion, but instead undertake a series of opportunistic forays into very particular dimensions of these corpora for the specific purpose of grasping some of the earliest recorded reflections on both sovereignty and its relation to matter.

The denouement of these tumultuous events is visually depicted in a stirring relief composition—the only part of the monument that would have been intelligible to most observers— in which Darius, with his foot pressed firmly on the chest of the imposter, stands facing the various troublemakers whom he successfully suppressed.
