The Persians were the people and culture of ancient Persia on Earth. They originated the concept of the "Persian flaw". (TNG: "Time Squared")

The "Persian flaw" that Commander William T. Riker referred to was the flaw found in all Persian rugs, left there on purpose by the rug maker to signify that man is inherently flawed.

In 480 BC, the vast Persian army besieged a mountain pass for two days against a small force of Spartans, led by King Leonidas, in what was later known as the Battle of Thermopylae. (DS9: "What You Leave Behind")
