- Additional information from Corpus Inscriptionum Iranicarum; Part I, Inscriptions of Ancient Iran; Vol. I, The Old Persian Inscriptions reads, "The architectural activities in Persepolis started soon after 519 B.C. ...and continued until Alexander's arrival in 330 B.C.. 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. The copies of XPc [were engraved] on the pillars and the south wall of the south portico of the Tachara, which was completed by Xerxes. Here Xerxes speaks of his father's construction of the palace, but architectural indications point to the continuation of the work from the main part of the Tachara to its southern portico, and suggest a date between 486 and 481 B.C."

- Information from Roland G. Kent's 1953 publication reads, "DPa = Darius, Persepolis A: Trilingual, six lines each, several times on doorposts of the inner room of the palace, above figures of Darius and his attendants."

- Additional information from Corpus Inscriptionum Iranicarum; Part I, Inscriptions of Ancient Iran; Vol. I, The Old Persian Inscriptions reads, "The architectural activities in Persepolis started soon after 519 B.C. ...and continued until Alexander's arrival in 330 B.C.. 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. The copies of XPc [were engraved] on the pillars and the south wall of the south portico of the Tachara, which was completed by Xerxes. Here Xerxes speaks of his father's construction of the palace, but architectural indications point to the continuation of the work from the main part of the Tachara to its southern portico, and suggest a date between 486 and 481 B.C."

- Additional information from Corpus Inscriptionum Iranicarum; Part I, Inscriptions of Ancient Iran; Vol. I, The Old Persian Inscriptions reads, "The architectural activities in Persepolis started soon after 519 B.C. ...and continued until Alexander's arrival in 330 B.C.. 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. The copies of XPc [were engraved] on the pillars and the south wall of the south portico of the Tachara, which was completed by Xerxes. Here Xerxes speaks of his father's construction of the palace, but architectural indications point to the continuation of the work from the main part of the Tachara to its southern portico, and suggest a date between 486 and 481 B.C."
