This image, of a lance and quiver, is from a frieze originally located at the palace of Xerxes in Susa (one of the Persian Empire's four capital cities).  It is now maintained at the Louvre in Paris. 

Scholars believe the frieze depicts the type of lance and quiver used by members of Xerxes' personal bodyguard (called the Immortals).
