Picture of the day
Naghsh-e rostam, Irán, 2016-09-24, DD 12.jpg
Relief of triumph of Shapur I over Valerian at Naqsh-e Rostam (ca. 241–272 AD), located in Persepolis, Iran. This carving depicts a famous scene in which the Roman Emperor, Valerian, is kneeling before Shapur I and asking for mercy. Shapur defeated Valerian at the Battle of Edessa, in which the entire Roman army was destroyed and Valerian became Shapour's prisoner. This was the first and only time a Roman emperor was taken prisoner. The Emperor Philip the Arab is depicting standing and Gordian III is dead at the feet of Shapur's horse.
