Antiquities Unearthed in Tees Port


News Category: Sasanian Dynasty

 07 February 2002



Iranian archaeologists, affiliated to Cultural Heritage Organization (CHO), unearthed a precious collection of ancient antiquities in Tees Port's general region, near Chabahar (Châhbahâr), the farthest southeastern Iranian city.

The collection was spotted quite accidentally in the course of digging in order to lay the foundation of a new road in the region.

Head of the province's CHO Reza Heydari told IRNA that the ollection dates back to the Sasanian era and includes gold and silver coins and ornaments such as bracelets, ear rings, rings, and wrist bands.

He said that the whole collection was found inside a clay jar and the design of some of the gold and silver ornaments are completed with using colored glass.

Heydari said, "finding this ancient collection marks a turning point in the history of Tees Port, where archaeological studies done in the past, too, had led to great findings.

He added, "according to previous archaeological assessments, the Tees was a prosperous Port between the 11th and 13th centuries, but the recent studies suggest that this port was used also during the Achaemenid, the Partian, and the Sasanian dynasties.

The CHO expert concluded, "finding this collection shed new light on the historical identity of the whole region, particularly that of the Chabahar.
