Shapur’s Parade relief at Naqsh-e Rajab
Having the statues of the elders of any land, especially Iran, is a sign of our respect and love for the elders of our land, although if we live outside of Iran, because our culture depends on these elders. These Tablets statues is a sign of our interest in our land and our history.
Naqsh-e Rajab is an archaeological site just west of Istakhr and about 5 km north of Persepolis in Fars Province, Iran.
Naqsh-e Rajab is the site of four limestone rockface inscriptions and rock-cut bas-reliefs that date to the early Sassanid era. One of the carvings is the investiture inscription of Ardeshir I, the founder of the dynasty. The second investiture inscription is Ardeshir’s successor, Shapur I (241-272 CE). A third bas-relief, known as ‘Shapur’s Parade’ celebrates the king’s military victory in 244 over the Roman emperor Philip the Arab. A fourth bas-relief and inscription is attributed to Kartir, high priest under Shapur I and his sons Hormizd I (272-273 CE) and Bahram I (273–276 CE).
