TEHRAN -- The commander of Kerman Law Enforcement Forces said, "120 artifacts were seized, which date back to the prehistoric era in Jiroft. They were confiscated from smugglers who had excavated them from the city of Daqyanous near the Halil River.

The dishes are made out of stone and engraved with images such as dragons, eagles, animals, temples, and idols. Among the discoveries, there are beads that change color when in contact with water.

The Jiroft governor general said that it would be necessary to establish a museum in which to display them. Up to now over 22 hills, 5 castles, and 9 historical monuments, known as Daqyanous and Kamadin, have been registered in Jiroft.

Daqyanous, the only city that dates back to prehistoric times, was registered as a national heritage 70 years ago. The remainder of Jiroft's heritage is approximately 7,000 years old, of which 10 percent has been registered.
