The internets tells me that the first documented Persian-types were imported into Italy in the 1600s. XD
I also read that genetic research into the modern Persian shows it is, ancestrally, related to cats from Western Europe and not Asia.
I don't think the Persian, in any recognizable modern form, has been around since 500 BC. There may have been long-haired cats in that area at that time, but they weren't Persian cats as we know them.
