News Category: Median Dynasty

Thursday, 27 December 2001

 

A Median dynasty statue was discovered during the fourth excavation phase in the Uzbeki region of Savojbolagh.

The 15-cm statue has beautiful designs and a hat like the Median hats depicted in Persepolis (Takht-e Jamshid).

The bottom of the statue is cylindrical and may depict Median clothes. The statue is thought to be about 2700 years old. 

The head of the archaeological team said that cylindrical statues were popular all over the Middle East. According to the public relations office of the Cultural Heritage Organization, Maad Castle is on top of Uzbeki mountain. Uzbeki is located southwest of Tehran near Nazar-Abad in Savojbolagh.
