English: Khorasan (also transcribed as Khurasan and Khorassan, anciently called Traxiane during Hellenistic and Parthian times) currently names a region located in north eastern Iran. Historically, in medieval times, it referred to a wider area, and principally included the cities of Herat, Balkh, Samarqand, Nishapur, Mashhad, Bukhara, Merv and Nisa. The name Khorasan was given to the north-eastern province of Persia during the Sassanid Empire.
