LONDON, (CAIS) -- An exhibition of artifacts unearthed during recent excavations at the historical site of Valiran in Damavand, Tehran province, was held in Damavand.


Head of East Tehran ICHTO (Iran's Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Organisation) told Persian Service of IRNA that the three-day exposition featured dozens of historical objects which were recovered in good conditions.


Mohammad Beiraqi said that archeological studies on the items indicated that all of them date back to the Arsacid dynasty (248 BCE - 224 CE) while the fort, which was discovered in the area belongs to the Sasanian dynasty (224-651 CE).


He pointed out that the Arsacid artifacts, which include potteries, silver and coins, bowls, jug and thermos and are unique in their own kind, have been recovered from the historical graves.


“Rings, earrings made of silver and iron, different seals made from stone, glass, bitumen and wood were also displayed in the event,“ Beiraqi noted.


Head of East Tehran ICHTO further said that the objective of the exhibit was to make the local people familiar with the artefacts unearthed during the excavations in the area.


The exhibition opened on Thursday and continued for three days in the premises of East Tehran ICHTO in Damavand.
