Archaeologists return to historical city of Decius





Dating back to the Saffarid Dynasty, one of Iran’s oldest mosques, located in the city, is currently being excavated during this season, team director Hamideh Chubak told the Persian service of CHN on Monday.

Saffarids were an Iranian dynasty of lower class origins that ruled a large area of eastern Iran during the 9th century CE.

The team also has been scheduled to demarcate the city of Decius and to study industrial workshops located in the site, she added.
