  • Iron II Warrior Burials at Hasanlu Tepe, Iran
    • Authors: poj@peeters-leuven.be
      Abstract: The Hasanlu Project excavated approximately 100 graves of the Iron II period (Hasanlu IVb, 1050–800 BC) on the Low Mound of Hasanlu Tepe, located in the Western Azerbaijan Province of northwest Iran, between 1957 and 1964. The majority were simple, primary inhumations; however, some graves stand out, as do others excavated by earlier expeditions to the site. In Operation LI on the northern Low Mound, a stone-built hypogeum was encountered containing the secondary or disturbed burials of two probable male warriors. Ali Hakemi and Mahmud Rad excavated a similar Iron II hypogeum in 1949 on the northeastern Low Mound. Other warrior inhumations were found in and near the Operation LI hypogeum as well as in another part of the Low Mound cemetery not far from the Hakemi and Rad hypogeum. The presence of hypogea containing multiple burials and other Iron II burial types, the secondary nature of some interments, the inclusion of weapons and armor, and the contents of some surrounding Iron II graves suggest variability in Iron II mortuary practices, an interpretation at odds with previous assertions of uniformity in the 'Grey Ware Horizon' of western Iran. Rather than representing a wholesale shift in population or culture, the patterns seen in high status 'warrior graves' and their sudden proliferation in the Iron II suggests the onset of societal changes in the region indicative of militarization and/or the selective migration of young warriors into the autochthonous population.

  • The Funerary Landscape between Naqš-e Rostam and Estaḫr
           (Persepolis Region)
    • Authors: poj@peeters-leuven.be
      Abstract: During surveys over the southern part of the Kuh-e Hossein range and east of Naqš-e Rostam, a group of three pairs of rock-cut niches (two unfinished) was found at the foot of high cliffs rising above the foothills in 2012. Next to the niches nine engraved inscriptions were discovered. A year later an epigraphic study was carried out in order to decipher the Middle Persian texts. These rock-cut niches are in line with previously documented inscribed funerary remains in the surroundings of the historical city of Estaḫr: the inscriptions depict them as daḫmag. Less than 1 m in size, they should most probably be interpreted as ossuaries or cavities cut in the rock to shelter mobile ossuaries. The style of script suggests dating these funerary remains back to a period no earlier than the 7th century AD, most probably during the early decades of Islamic domination. These new tombs enhance our knowledge of the rich funerary landscape along the southern Kuh-e Hossein foothills, where we are able to distinguish various types of burial remains, some of which probably organized into cemeteries and/or necropoleis. This rocky environment also offers a wealth of other archaeological features like numerous ancient quarries which were widely reused to carve rock-cut niches and cists (i.e. funeral pits). The quarry and funerary/ritual landscapes are closely interconnected in such a way that the south part of Kuh-e Hossein offers eloquent evidence of the important and evolving symbolic value of the mountain, often connected to the divine power for Zoroastrians. For the future, we are convinced that careful and intensive fieldwork focusing on the reliefs could help us to tackle some of the challenging archaeological questions remaining unanswered in the Fārs Province, and particularly how funerary customs evolved through the ages, an aspect on which we still have a lot to learn.

      Abstract: The pillar ossuary is a unique but a less known type of Sasanian bone receptacle that has mainly been reported from Fars. This article introduces newly discovered twin pillar ossuaries south of Basht, in southern Kohgiloyeh va Boyer Ahmad Province. During the Sasanian period this region was situated in northern Pārs that is still one of the poorly known areas in Iranian archaeology.

  • Some notes on Karanos in the Achaemenid Empire
    • Authors: poj@peeters-leuven.be
      Abstract: The paper examines a question of karanos in the Achaemenid Empire. The prevailing view among those who write about the administrative system of the Achaemenid Empire and the military activities of Persian kings and satraps is that the word karanos designated a regional commander-in-chief of the Persian army. However the evidences having been considered in this paper show that the term karanos does not simply apply to a Persian regional commander-in-chief. Commanders of any rank could be called karanoi, and they were not equal in status: a karanos can be a regional commander, the commander of a campaignarmy and even the commander of a detachment within a royal army.

  • Stratégies d'exploitation de la pierre à Persepolis
    • Authors: poj@peeters-leuven.be
      Abstract: The building of Persepolis required a large amount of stone during the whole Achaemenid period. In first it was necessary to supply the several construction sites of the Royal Precinct and those of numerous monumental buildings distributed in the plain as far as Naqsh-e Rustam. Persepolis was settled in a mountainous environment and it means that the stone resources were abundantly available in the vicinity. The several quarries remains show that the quarrymen chose thoroughly supply sources according to the various needs of the building sites. As an example, the use of a fine black stone to carve the bas-reliefs of Apadana is well attested. Furthermore, the results of recent surveys bring us to think that a part of the huge ashlars used on the Persepolis Terrace was provided by quarries near Naqsh-e Rustam where the stone is better in quality. Also these surveys bring to light an intensive quarrying activity all along the piedmonts surrounding Persepolis. The city must have sheltered numerous quarrymen and stone masons and integrated in its organisation scheme all the infrastructure necessary for the extraction and the transport of stones.

  • A Highland Elamite Archer from Kūl-e Farah IV, CI:4
    • Authors: poj@peeters-leuven.be
      Abstract: This article follows in the footsteps of a handful of scholars who, since George N. Curzon’s time, have sought to underscore the significance of Elamite reliefs from the highland valley of Īzeh/Mālamīr. This study first introduces the reader to the Elamite reliefs from the highlands of Īzeh/Mālamīr and secondly offers new evidence for one of the best preserved sections of the relief known as Kūl-e Farah number IV (KFIV), an Elamite archer (number 4) located in Panel CI (CI:4).

  • A Preliminary Report on Four Seasons of Excavation at Moush Tepe, Hamedan,
           Iran
    • Authors: poj@peeters-leuven.be
      Abstract: Moush Tepe is located in the middle of the residential parts of Madani County in the north of Hamedan, and it is also 5 km from the north of Tappeh Hegmataneh (Hegmataneh Mound). In 1988, due to constructing a new county in Hamedan, this site was placed inside the urban areas; and consequently, it got dramatically damaged. The remaining parts of this ancient mound measuring roughly 900 m3 in area were excavated. Archaeological excavation begun in 2002 and continued for four more seasons till 2005. In the course of these excavations, a mud-brick structure with striking similarities with the storehouses of Nush-i Jan Tepe was discovered.

  • Homogénéisation de la céramique fine de la deuxième moitié de
           l'âge du Fer au nord de l'Iran dans le cadre de l'horizon
           à céramique de type Orange Ware
    • Authors: poj@peeters-leuven.be
      Abstract: Recently, the homogenization of fine ware called Orange Ware (Orange Ware Horizon) in the second half of the Iron Age (from the second half of the 8th century BC to the middle of the 6th century BC), in the mountainous lands of the northern part of Iran, has been pointed. In this paper, I analyze unpublished material and examine the range of this phenomenon. As a result, it is possible to offer the possibility that this phenomenon would have spread also in the eastern part and have been more dense Furthermore, I examine their characteristics of form, technic of production, and context. I formulate a hypothesis about function of this ware and the background of Orange Ware Horizon.

  • The Baba Jilan Graveyard near Nurabad, Pish-i Kuh, Luristan
    • Authors: poj@peeters-leuven.be
      Abstract: A graveyard at Baba Jilan in Dilfan province, Pish-i Kuh, Luristan, was reportedly looted in 2005. It was investigated by the local branch of the Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Organisation from 2006 to 2008. Cist tombs and jar burials were discovered and isolated objects and sherds were collected from the plundered areas. Noteworthy among these are a Luristan iron mask pommel sword, the first ever-provenanced sword of this type, and a bronze fingerring with the image of Ahura Mazda in a winged circle. These finds suggest that the area may have been used as a graveyard from the late Iron Age II onwards.

  • A Shield-Bearer from Sialk
    • Authors: poj@peeters-leuven.be
      Abstract: The focus of this article are rectangular shields depicted on ancient Near Eastern reliefs and painted objects from the second millennium and the beginning of the first millennium B.C. The article considers the rectangular woven shields indicated by the brickwork pattern on the reliefs or by the chessboard on paintings. In the beginning of the first millennium B.C., as to judge from Assyrian reliefs, the rectangular woven shields were used only in the countries of Ancient Iran. Comparison of these shields depicted on the reliefs of Sargon II, on painted Greek Geometric pottery and on the vessel from Sialk B (Iran) confirms the dating of the painted pottery from Sialk B cemetery to the 2nd half of the 8th century B.C., as was offered by the author earlier.

  • Searching for Mythological Themes on the 'Jiroft' Chlorite
           Artefacts
    • Authors: poj@peeters-leuven.be
      Abstract: New evidence gathered at the plundered cemetery of Mahtoutabad, near the early urban compound of Konar Sandal South (Jiroft) confirms that here chlorite artifacts were used in elite funerals at the beginning of the second half of the 3rd millennium BCE. Some carved chlorite vessels from the Jiroft area and Shahdad represent a destructive flood, ending when a divinity lifts a rainbow in the sky. These images are compared with Old Babylonian and later cuneiform versions of flood myths. The paper also singles out indirect analogies with the flood narrative in Genesis 9, 12-17. Then it considers other images of fight between eagles and snakes, as possibly linked with parts of the famous and much discussed Mesopotamian poem of Etana (as already proposed in the past by Youssef Madjidzadeh). In spite of substantial divergences and discontinuities, at least in a crucial case the match between images and selected passages of the ancient sources appears more literal than previously suspected. It is argued that such similarities depended upon the wide circulation and sharing in the Middle and South Asia of the 3rd millennium BCE of codified oral versions of similar legendary themes (in form of narratives, through songs and rhymes). The Halil Rud stone carvers may have translated such intangible vanished heritage through standardized, formal images, in the context of a growing cultural and political interaction between the royal courts of Mesopotamia and those of the eastern polity of Marhashi.

  • Discovery of Middle Palaeolithic Artefacts from the Caves of Holeyman,
           Western Iran
    • Authors: poj@peeters-leuven.be
      Abstract: Many Palaeolithic sites have been reported from previous archaeological investigations in the Holeylan Plain in the west of Iran. As a common belief, the Palaeolithic chronology of this area begins from the late Lower Palaeolithic to the Epipalaeolithic. However, earlier studies considered many sites devoid of industries like Mousterian or Levallois. Therefore, a recent exploration was carried out which revealed a new phase in the stone tool technology of these sites, i.e., the Mousterian industry. The present paper is an attempt to bring forth the new chronology and discuss the typo-technology of the artefacts at these sites.
