dates back to the Parthian era. Studies of shards
discovered earlier prove that the site was inhabited until
the Parthian era but was abandoned afterwards,” he
team previously unearthed 3000-year-old shards at the site
and hope that they can also discover more ruins in order
to shed light on the architectural style of the site.
