THE SUMERIANS The Sumerians inhabited the lower reaches of the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers, preceding the Babylonians on the fertile flood plains of Mesopotamia (“between the rivers”). This region now forms the southern part of Iraq. e. Sport played a prominent role in this culture, even though archaeologists have discovered no actual stadia or other locations for physical activities. The ancient sources for Sumerian sport include statues, seals, reliefs, stelae (commemorative stone pillars containing inscriptions, scenes, or symbols), and some of the earliest forms of literature preserved in a cuneiform script on clay tablets.

Persian coins stamped with images of archers symbolized the importance of these individuals to the state. The Persians were also distinguished for their expertise in horse racing and especially in a type of polo known as chogãn.
