Abstract: 
Garshā sp is one of the greatest antient heroes of Iran whose accounts go back to the period of Indo-Iranian peoples. Numerous references have been made to this great figure’ s life in the Avestā as well as Farsi texts and the echo of some of his mythological heroism can be found in the poems Garshā spnā meh and Sā mnā meh. Notwithstanding Garshā sp’ s reputation and importance in Iran’ s epic literature, this hero has no marked presence and worthy role in the Shahnameh. Attention to this point caused some copyists to gradually versify the accounts about Garshā sp’ s heroic feats and insert them in the manuscripts of the Shā hnā meh. For example, in a manuscript of the Shā hnā meh at the British Library, dated 841/ 1439 and referred thereto in Khā leqi Motlaq’ s edition with the abbreviation sign ل3, wherever he could, the scribe has added to the text verses about Garshā sp, thus highlighting his presence in the Shā hnā meh. In this article, the interpolated verses in the above-mentioned manuscript as well as some other MSS of the Shahnameh and the likely sources of the stories presented in those verses, have been examined.
