Naqsh-e Rajab is one of the sculptor monuments in the vicinity of Persepolis, which includes four sculptors belonging to the Sassanian era.
The first sculptor of Naqsh-e Rajab belongs to Shapur I, in which some of the grandees are seen in a queue behind him, and there is also an inscription next to it, which refers to Ardashir being sent by Ahura Mazda (the Zoroastrian’s God).
The second sculptor of Naqsh-e Rajab depicts the coronation scene of Ardashir Sassani, the founder of the Sassanian dynasty, in which Ardashir’s household accompanied by the Zoroastrian priest are illustrated. In this sculptor, there is an inscription, twenty lines of which are preserved, and includes the great Zoroastrian priest’s explanation of his deeds and the king and country.
The third sculptor of Naqsh-e Rajab again depicts Shapur I and the scene of his coronation, in which the king is sitting on his horse across from a wide and prosperous plain.
The fourth sculptor, which is smaller than the others, illustrates the face of Kartir, who was the greatest clergyman in the Sassanian era. In this era, Zoroastrian priests had an extremely important position.
