Ring of Susa

Susa, one of the most ancient cities known, was founded around 4000 BC in the beautiful plain of today's Khuzestan, at the foot of the Iranian plateau. This city has been explored since 1897 by French teams which have unearthed both masterpieces of Mesopotamian art, brought there as war booty, and vestiges of the Elamite civilization.

Susa was then part of the land of Elam, which included the fertile plain of the Kerkha and the Karun, and the actual plateau which the Persians call Fars.

At the beginning of the 2nd millennium, its inhabitants increased their wealth through trade with Mesopotamia and wore ornaments in gold, but more often in silver, which were later found in their tombs : headpieces and breastplates for women, ear-pendants and rings of simple form, which display a great mastery nonetheless.
