This is a grave mistake and pure and simple ignorance. These characters are Sumerian Cuneiform, and for those that dare dispute this, then hundreds of thousands of documents exists in the British Museum, The Luvere, the SAOS and authorities round the world are there for you to learn and educate yourself.

Please read sections 14.6 "Old Persian" and 14.7 "Sumero-Akkadian" of the Unicode Standard, where the difference between these two scripts is explained. Whatever your peronal opinions, Old Persian has been encoded separately from Sumero-Akkadian Cuneiform in Unicode, and Wikipedia reflects what Unicode has actually encoded, regardless of whether any one individual disagrees with it.
