More than 80 relics—some older than 2,000 years—have been seized in Sari, Mazandaran Province, the provincial police chief said. "The objects include clay pots, plates, oil lamps and urns, bronze bells, bracelets, rings, belt buckles and spoons, dating back to the Parthian (247 BC – 224 AD) and Sassanid (224–651) eras," Mehr News Agency quoted Seyyed Mahmoud Mirfeyzi as saying.  The objects were found by the narcotics division in a safe during a raid on a shop owned by a suspected drug dealer, whose name was not disclosed.
