Another 5000-year-old inscription discovered in Iran

The second ancient inscription which was carved on rock in Kaftarlou hill have been discovered in Akhtarabad region in Shahriyar plain located in Iranian western province of Kordestan. Due to the similarity of this writing with those previously found in Susa clay stamps and Jiroft’s inscription, experts estimate that this newly discovered geometrical inscription must have dated back to at least 5000 years ago.

Regarding the antiquity of this inscription, Reza Moradi Ghiasabadi, archaeologist and researcher, assrted: "Based on the signs implemented in creating this geometrical writing and its similarity to Susa stamps, it is believed that it must have belonged to 4200 to 4500 years ago. On the other hand, due to the rate of oxidization, we give the possibility that the inscription must have been more ancient."
