Enclosure for Parthian Saltman Built

 

03 July 2006

 

 

 

LONDON, (CAIS) -- Mummified human remains, dates back to the Parthian dynastic era, known as ’Saltman No. 4’, which was found in Chehrabad Mines near Zanjan, will henceforth be stored in an enclosure in Saltmen Museum.


According to ISNA Persian Service, temperature, humidity, light and other factors influential in the preservation of the mummified human remains have been taken into account in constructing the enclosure.


Head of Materials and Laboratory Services Section at the Research Center for the Restoration and Preservation of Historical and Cultural Artifacts Manijeh Hadian said that the enclosure was constructed on the basis of information obtained from ’Saltman No.1’.


The enclosure has a simple form so that it cannot have any impact on the relic, she noted, adding that it has been designed in a way to hold the artifacts discovered along with the saltman including a dagger, leather shoe and potteries.


Noting that the enclosure is made of flexi-glass, which makes it flexible, Hadian stated that the possibility of breakage is lower and the saltman is visible from the outside.


“It took one year to build the enclosure,“ she said.


Saltman No.4 is the most well-preserved of the five mummified remains found in Zanjan Chehrabad site. He was a 165-70 cm tall 16-year-old male.
