TehranTimes , Culture desk : Tehran – About 100 rock tombs dating back to the Parthian period have recently been discovered accidentally near Ahvaz , the provincial capital of Khuzestan in southwestern Iran.

Khuzestan Cultural Heritage Lovers Society ( Tariana ) spokesman Mojtaba Gahestuni came across the tombs on mounds located east of the city , the Persian service of CHN reported on Tuesday.

 

“ I saw traces of cuts in the rocks when I was walking on the mounds. So , I began to search around more carefully and stumbled on numerous tombs , which had been dug in the rocks on the slope of one of the mounds , “ he said.

After Gahestuni informed the Khuzestan Cultural Heritage , Tourism and Handicrafts Department ( KCHTHD ) , experts from the department said the tombs have not been previously identified.

He also sent photos of the tombs to a number of archaeologists. Most of them believe that these structures are tombs , which the Parthians used to bury the bones of the dead , Gahestuni said.

However , he added that one of the archaeologists surmises that the structure may be part of a system for storing and purifying water due to the order of the excavations on the slope.

Gahestuni said that the structure are currently threatened by a plan to create a greenbelt in the area.

He urged KCHTHD to take action soon before the area is destroyed by the plan.
