This Carving In Naghsh-e Rostam Started The Search For Horses In Iranian Culture

Four kilometers from northeast of Persepolis, there are some historical works belonging to Elamite, Achaemenid and Sassanid kings which are called Naghsh-e Rostam because of their grandeur and height.

On the top of the mountain there are four tombs which are believed to be those of, Xerxes, Darius I Artaxerexes and Darius II, the Achaemenid kings.

In the first relief which has been carved in the lower side of the mountain, Narssi, the son of Shapur I receives the royal ring from the symbol of Anahita. -

This is the "Only Place" where I could find a relation between "God and Human Both On Horses". This indicates a very special relation of "Man and Hourse" in a culture. --Siamak D. Ahi
