The Archælogical Museum is relatively small (you can see it all in an hour or two unless you're prone to linger), and almost everything is captioned in English as well as Farsi. Some of the most magnificent pieces from Persepolis are here, including this pillar. The double-headed animals are a recurrent theme in the art at Persepolis—they signify the unity of the Medean and Parthian armies behind their Persian emperor.
