Caption

Nearly 1800s year old Sassanid stone relief at early morning when Venus and the stars of Leo are shining above. The relief shows the founder of the Sassanid Empire handed the ring of kingship by Ahuramazda, symbol of God according to Zorostrians. Below each of the two figures is their enemy, the devil below Ahuramazda's horse and the Parthian king below Ardashir's horse. The relief inscription bears the oldest attested use of the term 'Iran'.
