In order to be a cultured person in ancient Iran, Herodotus mentions that the Persians had to ride horses well, shoot and tell the truth. They should know the stories of old and about their father, i.e., Cyrus. 
By the late ancient period (200-700 CE), the idea of culture and learning had developed further and had become complex in terms of physical and mental preparation. Drawing on both archaeological and textual evidence from pre-Islamic period.
