Naqsh-i Rustam (also Naqsh-e Rustam; in English, the Throne of Rustam) was considered a sacred mountain range in the Elamite periods
(early first millennium BCE). The façades of Naqsh-i Rustam became the burial site for four Achaemenid rulers and their families in
the fifth and fourth centuries BCE, as well as a major center of sacrifice and celebration during the Sasanian period between the
third and seventh century CE. These squeezes are from the Tomb of Darius I.
