The structures -and hence the cuneiform inscriptions- of Persepolis were thus created in the space of nearly two hundred years. Besides the platform itself, the earliest known monument was undoubtedly the small and yet charming Palace of Darius (the Tachara), which crowns the acropolis at its western quarter. Then Darius planned and partly completed the great audience palace (the Apadāna), a project which was expanded and completed by his son Xerxes. The first four lines of inscription (=XPb) carved on the west panel of the north stairway of the Apadāna were also removed (in two fragments) and eventually housed in the British Museum (No. 118840 and 118841)."
