• The Achaemenid inscriptions contain accounts of financial affairs such as trade of goods and wages.

    With the US Supreme Court's verdict in favor of Iran in the case of ancient Persian artifacts held by a Chicago museum, the process of their return to the country will soon be initiated. 
    The court ruled on Wednesday that the American victims of a 1997 bombing in Beit-ul-Moqaddas cannot satisfy a $71.5 million court judgment against Iran by seizing and selling the ancient Iranian antiquities. 
    Ali Asghar Mounesan, the head of Iran's Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Organization, referred to the court's judgment as a huge victory achieved through Iran's diplomatic attempts, IRNA reported. 
    "After years of efforts, Iran's tactful policies finally paved the way for Achaemenid tablets' reclamation," he said.
