As readers of my books know, the mighty Parthian Empire was founded by the exiled ten tribes of Israel, and Parthia specifically fulfilled the prophecy in Isaiah 14:2 that the exiled Israelites would eventually rule over their former captors (Assyria, Babylon, the Medes, etc.). The Parthian Empire lasted from 250 BC to about 227 AD, sprawled over South Central Asia and fought the Roman Empire on equal terms.

Even though the ravages of time have destroyed many Parthian structures and artifacts, archaeologists periodically discover troves of Parthian artifacts when an ancient Parthian city is discovered and unearthed. Another such Parthian site has been found with many copper artifacts discovered (including weaponry, farm tools, pans, etc.). previous posts at this category have reported that the modern Islamic regime of Iran considers all pre-Islamic artifacts in Iran to be unworthy of protection so priceless artifacts from ancient Persian and Parthian civilizations have either been destroyed or are at risk of destruction.

Apparently, most of these Parthian artifacts date to the late Parthian period (around 200 AD), but some date to as  early as 300 BC. The location of the dig is in the Parthian homeland southeast of the Caspian Sea, in which the Parthians lived under both the Persian Achaemenid Empire and the Seleucid Greek Empire before the Parthians rebelled against the Seleucid Greeks and founded their own Empire.

I certainly hope that God is preserving some very vital and important Parthian artifacts, cities and inscriptions under the sands of Iran so they can be unearthed and put on exhibit during the Millennial reign/Messianic Reign of Jesus Christ/Yashua. It is my opinion that God has concealed and preserved many vital pieces of evidence about ancient history by concealing them in many places in the earth’s strata. God knows where they are and will have them brought to the surface as silent witnesses to the truth of the Biblical accounts after this current age comes to an end.
