Heghmatane Ancient City (7th and early 6th centuries BC) Hagmatana was further developed under the Achaemenian and Parthian rulers and was known as the first capital of the ancient Persian Empire. Scientific excavations and accidental diggings for construction works have resulted in the discovery of numerous objects, including some gold and silver tablets, in the region. This indicates that the treasury of the Achaemenian monarchs was kept in Hagmatana and that the present Hamadan has been constructed upon a part of the site of the ancient city.

An excellent documentary photo and note to accompany it, to show these excavations and the glimpses into the past. It must be exciting to consider what could be found in this ancient place. I would say your museums are looking forward to seeing what is unearthed here!
All the best
