Expulsion Of Invading Arabs To Kerman

Apr, 18, 331 AD

Arc of Rayn: The city of Rayn built during Sassanid dynasty is located 100 lm south of KermanAfter squelching the uprising by Arabs who had migrated from Arabia to Bahrain, Shapour 2 ordered their expulsion to the area near Kerman. It's been reported that their shoulders had been punctured to let a rope get through as a punishment and that may be the reason Shapour was called Zolaktaf meaning owner of two shoulders in Arabic.
