Chronicle of Cyrus Eterna, leader of all Persia
From the beginning, the Persian nomads were learned and prosperous. 20,000 men, women, and children carried with them the secrets of irrigating, trail marking, mining. They had tamed the wild horse and followed a settled code of laws. When a Persian crafter solved the puzzle of working bronze he also realized a nomadic people could not exploit this new knowledge.
