The Vologaeses Inscription at Behistun | VIB

A short, fragmentary inscription from the site of Behistun. For reasons explained in the introduction, the date cannot be established with much precision, but it must fall between the mid-first and early third centuries CE; my best guess is that it dates to the late second or early third centuries.

The text is from Gropp / Nadjmabadi 1970: 200; see the Introduction for their description and drawing.
