250 Historical seized relics Handed Over to Museum
 


Monday, March 01, 1999

 

Some 250 relics, including pottery dishes and some tools, which were unearthed by illegal excavation in East Azarbaijan Province, were seized and handed over to Ganjineh Museum in Tabriz. 

 

The antique goods are said to date back to late second millennium BC and early first millennium BC, the era known as ``Gray Pottery'' civilization. 

 

``The delivered goods total 220 pieces including five brick-red pottery dishes and goods made of admiralty brass such as mace-heads, spearheads, and daggers,'' said the museum curator, Javad Ghandgar. ``Inscriptions or brands are seen on some of the goods ,'' he added.

He further said that a team of archeologists were working to estimate the cultural value of the goods. 

 

Azarbaijan Museum is presently displaying some 4,600 pieces of antiques including coins, pottery and metal dishes, statutes, stamps, golden and silver dishes, golden cups, and etc. dating from the 5th millennium BC to Qajari era.
