Repatriated Ancient Persian Artifacts on Show

Thirty ancient Persian artifacts repatriated to Iran from Italy in November have been displayed for the public at the National Museum of Iran in Tehran.
The exhibited items include pottery, porcelain, enamel, clay figurines, seals and very rare jewels and ornaments which belong to the third and first millennia BC, Parthian Empire (247 BC - 224 AD) and the Islamic Golden Age, eighth and ninth centuries, IRNA reported.
The artifacts were seized from smugglers in Italy. They were identified by specialists of the National Museum of Oriental Art in Rome to have eastern and most likely Persian origins, said the deputy of Iran’s Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Organization (ICHHTO) Muhammad Hassan Talebian.
When informed by the Italian police, the Iranian Embassy in Rome invited experts from the ICHHTO to Italy to study the collection. After it was proved that they belong to Iran, the items were transferred to the Iranian Embassy in Rome and later to Iran, Talebian added.
The exhibition of relics which started on January 3 will continue for a month at the museum located at Yarjani St., 30th Tir St., downtown Tehran.
