TL;DR: Sceau en pierre ellipsoide perce dont la surface incisee represente Mithra entoure d'un halo and un adorateur (BM 1932.5-17-1) as discussed by the authors.
Abstract: Sceau en pierre ellipsoide perce dont la surface incisee represente Mithra entoure d'un halo et un adorateur (BM 1932.5-17-1). Lien entre le dieu Mithra et d'autres dieux solaires : Mihina, Miiro, Surya. De par son iconographie et sa stylistique il peut tout aussi bien provenir du nord-ouest de l'Inde que de l'Iran sassanide et est l'un des rares exemples d'une representation de Mithra dans l'art iranien

TL;DR: The relationship between the sacred drink haoma and narcotic plants is a major focus in studying the religious and ritualistic traditions of the ancient people of Indo-Iran and Central Asia.
Abstract: The relationship between the sacred drink haoma and narcotic plants is a major focus in studying the religious and ritualistic traditions of the ancient people of Indo-Iran and Central Asia. This study addresses this question through an analysis of archaeological data gathered at the Margiana and Bactria geographical locations, which were the home to the Sakas Haomavarga people. This analysis argues that the haoma drink was used as a means of transcending the ordinary state of mind in order to connect with the supranatural realms of reality. Therefore haoma was upheld as a sacred potion among the Iranian-speaking people of the ancient world.

TL;DR: In this paper, the authors present new survey data for settlements and agriculture in the Kur River Basin, the largest internal basin in the southern Zagros, and discuss the implications of this data for understanding Sasanian agricultural practices, the growing industrialization of the agricultural economy, the implications for social organization, and potential reasons why Sasanian agriculture was organized using weirs, rather than reservoir dams.
Abstract: Data for the political economy in the highlands of Sasanian Persis is relatively limited, leading researchers to suggest that agricultural development and the level of urbanism in the region was limited. This article will present new survey data for settlements and agriculture in the Kur River Basin, the largest internal basin in the southern Zagros. It will also discuss the implications of this data for understanding Sasanian agricultural practices, the growing industrialization of the agricultural economy, the implications for social organization, and potential reasons why Sasanian agriculture was organized using weirs, rather than reservoir dams.
