newly designated the "Twin Salt Man" discovered
recently, has been contemporary with another salt man whose
rather intact body had been discovered earlier in a salt quarry
in the Iranian province of Zanjan, experts said.
Following some tests on the outfit of the Twin Salt Man, Dr.
Hoshang Sabouti concluded the fabric was woven almost in the
same era. He had already conducted similar studies on the first
Salt Man’s threadbare attire, discovered a decade ago in the
Hamzehlou salt quarry.
“His shirt and trousers are similar to those of the original
man in terms of design, color and making,” he said, adding the
second guy looks taller than his fellow citizen.
