200 Stones From Median Era Discovered

 

News Category: Median Dynasty

 Tuesday, 04 December 2001

 

TEHRAN -- Some two hundred stones dating back to the Median dynasty (750-550 BCE) have been discovered in Chahârmahâl-Bakhtiâri Province.

 

An expert at the Chahârmahâl-Bakhtiâri Province Cultural Heritage Department, Karimiân, said that 150 of the stones have been registered as national monuments.

 

It seems after the overthrow of the Sasanian dynasty, some Iranians who were unable to escape with their tribes from Arab massacres, lived in the stones. These people lived in holes which were carved in the stones until they were able to rejoin their tribes.

 

The stones, which are two meters tall, one meter wide and 70 centimeters long, have been found near the rivers of the cities of Fârsân and Ardâl in Chahârmahâl-Bakhtiyâri Province, Karimiân said.

 

The largest stone is in Deh-No village near Farsan city. It is 240 centimeters long and 210 centimeters wide. The smallest stone is in Ardâl city. It is 110 centimeters long and 80 centimeters wide.
