Italian Archaeologists Classify Isfahan Jame’ Mosque Potteries

 

News Category: Post-Sasanian Period

 30 November 2005

 

 

 Ancient potteries from Isfahan’s historical Jame’ Mosque which are being classified and assessed by a team of Iranian and Italian archeologists will soon be handed over to National Museum of Iran, reported ISNA.


Head of the team studying the cultural heritage of Isfahan’s Jame’ Mosque, Fariba Saeedi said that both Iranian and Italian are still working on the classification of potteries which were unearthed from the site. The first stage of the work will be completed by March 2007, she added.


She said that in the first stage, pieces of pottery with particular features are being separated from ordinary ones.


Saeedi said that out of 500,000 pieces of potteries, some 70,000 pieces have been separated so far. Of this, about 2,000 or 3,000 pieces are unique with special designs belonging to specific periods of history.


Iran National Museum will hold an exhibit for several months starting December 4 to display potteries, glass ware, tile works and plaster works which were transferred to the museum from Isfahan Jame’ Mosque.


The historic mosque was built in 772 AD over Sasanian Fire-Temple and underwent repairs during the Saljuqid and Safavid eras. Some archeologists believe that construction of the mosque dated back to before the advent of Islam.
