Description[edit | edit source]

Media was an ancient Iranian state that was created by a Western Iranic people, the Medes, relatives of the European Scythians. Their state preceded the Persian Achaemenid Empire, which was formed as a result of a rebellion of the Persians against the Median ruler Astyages. It was the first multi-ethnic empire and controlled a vast area spanning from the Halys river to what is now Afghanistan.
