LONDON, (CAIS) -- Discovery of Parthian earthenware floor in depth of 25 centimeter in the Sasanid halls in Dastva city surprised archaeologists. In addition, two other pillars were discovered in the Sasanid hall in Dastva historical city in Shushtar in Khuzestan province.

“In 25 meters depth of one on this pillars an earthenware floor were discovered. Although, some flag stoned floors had already been discovered, this is the first time an earthenware floor has been unearthed in an historical site in Iran. The architectural style of the discovered pillars indicated that most probably it must have been constructed during the Sasanid dynastic era, however it seems that the earthenware floor belonged to the Parthian dynastic era,” said Mehdi Rahbar, archaeologists and head of excavation team in Dastva city.

Last season of archaeological excavations in Dastva historical site led to the discovery of a 2000-year-old plaster window belonging to the Parthian dynastic era and some unique stucco decorations for the first time in this historical site.
