Photographer's Note

The ancient Hegmatanen hill is located at the entrance of Hamadan city. Relics discovered from this hill are, a golden tablet (from the times of Ariamaneh, the father of Arsham), the golden cup (related to Khashayar Shah, the offspring of Darius) dating to the 5th century BC. A sword and a goblet (of approximately the Achaemenian period), and an embossed lion with wings in a leaping position (related to the Achaemenian era). These discoveries show that this area,i.e., the Hegmataneh hill was most probably the treasury of the Achaemenian monarchs.( همدان - تپه باستاني هگمتانه )
