LONDON, (CAIS) -- A request has been put forward to carry out an archaeological survey at ancient Baq Tepe site. This announcement was made on Wednesday by Masumeh Davudian, head of Damghan’ ICHTO, according to ISNA Persian Service.

 

“This historical tepe which was occupied during the Parthian and Sasanian dynastic eras was used as a military base. We have series of tepes like Baq, on the road to Damghan, with similar function. These tepes were used by the Partho-Sasanian armies for logistic purposes” according to Davudian.

 

She added, “the request for the survey has not been authorized by the authority yet”.

 

Baq Tepe located 18km from Damghan ( Dāmgān - ancient Sad-Darvāzé) one of the ancient capitals of the third Iranian dynasty, the Arsacids (248 BCE-224 CE) in Semnan Province.
