This is the first time the Cyrus Cylinder (Manshoor-e Kourosh) has visited the United States. The Cylinder tells an amazing story. Read about the story, and its impact on defining human rights.
Fun fact: the United States' founding fathers were influenced by the story. Notably, Thomas Jefferson owned two personal copies of Xenophon’s book Cyropaedia – the Education of Cyrus – which was “a mandatory read for statesmen.”
The Cylinder is traveling with an exhibition of 16 objects from the British Museum.
