An Achaemenid City Discovered

 

19 April 2005

 

Archeologists engaged in excavations in the Borazjan region of Bushehr province have come across the ruins of the ancient city of Tamouken which dates back to the Achaemenid era, reported CHN.


Tamouken, which has so far remained unidentified, is believed to be the ancient city of Tavaj.


Archeological excavations revealed three palaces of Black Stone, Black Bardak and Charkhab in Bushehr and confirmed the identity of a total of 20 architectural sites and monuments which were found by a leading American expert on ancient calligraphy several decades ago.


Head of Borazjan archeological team, Ehsan Yaghmaie noted that investigations show that the Dashtestan region is in fact the ancient Achaemenid city of Tamouken.
Tamouken, or Toukeh as called by Greeks, is an ancient city belonging to Achaemenid era.


Given its proximity to Fars region, Tamouken was considered a part of that province, Yaghmaie pointed out.
