The “Immortals” was the name given by Herodotus (Athanatoi) to an elite force of soldiers who fought for the Achaemenid Empire. This force performed the dual roles of both Imperial Guard and standing army during the Persian Empire’s expansion and during the Greco-Persian Wars. Its Persian name may have been Anûšiya.
