Abstract

The site of Dahaneh-ye Gholaman (Sistan, in the southeastern part of the Iranian Plateau) was discovered in the early 1960s by Umberto Scerrato of IsMEO (now IsIAO). It was a major urban center of the 6th to the 5th centuries BC. New excavations at Dahaneh-ye Gholaman started in October 2000. During the third campaign of excavations, traces of wall paintings and incised images have been identified in room 25. The most important scene shows a standing man, chariot rider, with a bow in his hand, shooting an animal, most probably a wild boar. In the same room and among a great variety of painted designs, which are only partly distinguishable, there are also remains of an image of a Bactrian camel.
