From Oxus to Euphrates: Sasanian Empire Symposium



A number of consultants participated in an all-day symposium on the legacy of the traditional Persian Sasanian empire (224-651 A.D.). The Sasanians dominated a big empire in Central and Western Asia, stretching from the Oxus River to the Euphrates and from the Hindukush to Japanese Arabia, for over 400 years (224-651 B.C.). Often known as Iranshahr (the Area of Iran), it was a robust empire that engendered a lot of what got here to be often known as the Iranian tradition within the medieval and fashionable durations.
