The old Persian ''syllabary'' is somewhat misnomer it also contains logograms. Because most of the signs are syllabograms old persin is classified as syllabic script. It's also skeletal which means sounds like /pu/ are writen with pa and u and do not have independent signs. Single consonant that form part of a consonant cluster or the end of a syllable are also written with syllabograms with the /a/ vowel.

The Persian GovernmentThe Persian administrative system was far more efficient and human, even though it was built upon the Assyrian model. The empire was divided into twenty provinces, or satrapies, each ruled by a governor called a satrap. To check the satraps a secretary and a millitary official representing the ''Great King, King of Kings'' were installed in every province. Also special inspectors ''the Eyes and Ears of the King,'' traveled through the realm.Imperial post roads connected the important cities. Along the Roal Roads between Sardis and Susa was a postal station every fourteen miles, where the kings couriers could obtain fresh horese, enabling them to cover the 1600 mile rout in a week. Which was good for dilering messages.
