Rare Cuneiform Scripts Found in Persepolis

 

News Category: Achaemenian Dynasty

 31 October 2004

 

 

 Archeologists have come across some samples of cuneiform scripts etched on clays in Persepolis, Cultural Heritage News agency reported.


However, the archeologists could not decipher them because they were not familiar with this form of cuneiform script. Hence, they dispatched the samples to American and European experts to be decoded.


A special project was launched in Parseh Research Foundation four months ago to conduct investigations on several Achaemenid clay writings.


In the course of investigations on the writings on clay, an expert of ancient handwritings, Abdolmajid Arfai came across a triangle-shaped clay measuring 2 cm X 2cm X 4 cm.


Given the absence of experts on other types of cuneiform handwriting in Iran, he said pictures of these handwritings have been sent to American, German and Italian universities to discern the type of handwriting and decipher them.
