A bas-relief was found near Parishan Lake in 2004 and was registered in Iran’s national heritage list. Due to Its features, it is assumed to belong to the Sassanid dynesty. Since the purpose of creating the relief and its subject was unknown, it was analyzed by comparing with other Sassanid coins and stones. Considering the existence of reedy and lake in the area and its location on the top of the mountain, also a woman’s image depicted on relief, we can come to this conclusion that this image belongs to the Anahita, goddess of water, and like other Sassanid reliefs is situated close to springs, rivers and is related to their rituals. Anahita was “Goddess of Waters” and hence is associated with fertility, felicity in Iranian ancient culture.
