Inscription Proves Jiroft Civilization

 

09 April 2006

 

 

 

LONDON, (CAIS) -- Doubts about the existence of civilization in Jiroft were laid to rest when archeologists discovered a tablet (11x7 cm with a 2 cm width) bearing an inscription.


The Persian daily Jaam-e Jam quoted the head of Jiroft’s International Archeological Research Center, Nader Alidadi-Soleymani, as saying that the tablet has five lines of scripts each containing 12 letters.


“This indicates the existence of civilization in Jiroft, as mentioned in the history books,“ he said.


The official pointed out that the absence of a script was a stumbling block to proving Jiroft’s civilization.


Meanwhile, Pitman, a US archeologist who had been involved in several phases of excavations at Jiroft, said archeological studies only lacked a script to prove Jiroft’s civilization.


Alidadi-Soleymani declared that the inscription has been dispatched to international experts for decoding.
“The absence of war tools from Jiroft’s historical sites also indicates that peace and security prevailed there,“ he said.
