Sasanian Epigraphic Collection

Published: July 21, 2016

The Sasanian Epigraphic Collection represents the only complete holding of Sasanian royal and private inscriptions dating back to the third and fourth century C.E. The Silicone imprints, supplemented by digitized photographs made from the inscriptions in situ, are being currently used towards the preparation of a new comprehensive critical edition of the Sasanian epigraphic corpus. More importantly, they will provide a unique tool for our qualified under- and graduate students to deepen their philological training by gaining first hand knowledge of paleography.
