Two 400-year-old Stone Inscriptions Discovered in Tehran
Tehran, 17 January 2006 (CHN) -- Two historical stone inscriptions have been accidentally discovered in a park in Takhti St. of Tehran. Archeologists of the Cultural Heritage and Tourism Organization of the province of Tehran believe that these inscriptions belong to 400 years ago.
“Following the accidental discovery of these two stone inscriptions by the workers of Tehran Municipality, the case was reported to the Cultural Heritage and Tourism Organization of Tehran province to be studied by this organization,” said Mohammad Reza Miraftabi, technical deputy of Tehran’s municipality in district no.12, to CHN correspondent.
According to Miraftabi, the experts of cultural heritage confirm that these two stone inscriptions are historical. However, since some parts of the carvings have been destroyed, they are not easily readable and more studies are needed to clarify the exact identities of these inscriptions.
