Excavations Underway to Locate Ancient Greek Temple in Western Iran

 

25 June 2005

 

LONDON, (CAIS) -- A team of Iranian archaeologists recently began searching for the location of the Post-Achaemenid Laodicea Temple in Nahavand, Hamedan Province, the director of the team announced on Thursday.

“On June 15, the team began excavations, which will probably last until late July,” Mehdi Rahbar added.

In 1943, archaeologists discovered an ancient inscription written in Greek in Nahavand, indicating the existence of a temple named Laodicea in the area, which dated back to the reign of Antiochus III (223-187 BC), the Seleucid ruler.
