Prior to the story of Purim was there a special yearly reading of Parshas Zachor? At which point in history was it instituted to read Parshas Zachor before Purim?

It could have been that people would just hear the parsha during the reading of Ki-Seitzei. The problem is, this wouldn't work with a triennial cycle. –  Ypnypn Jan 10 at 15:18
@Ypnypn: You may be correct. I would love to see a source! –  Gershon Gold Jan 10 at 17:37
