local kings of Persia (Frataraka)Q2


 Studying Iran’ s history, after Alexander’ s time period, which was called Hellenism, has no written primary resources. Hence, to reconstruct the history of local governments in this era, especially Pars, local available resources will be used. Without doubt, the most useful and reliable local sources in this era, are the Coins minted by the local kings of Persia, that show the Fars state has enjoyed autonomy for a period of time and its wardens were from local governors in that area. This research encompasses the time range between 220 to 140 BC, with a regard to the first set of Coins of Persian kings called "Frataraka". This paper have implemented by library and field researches that collected and studied from Persian kings’ Coins in the museums of Bank-e Sepah, Iran-e Bastan and Tamashagah-e Pool. Obviously, these Coins contain certain political and religious symbols that are rooted in its sublime past. Symbols used in Frataraka Coins appear in manuscripts and various shapes such as Frataraka banner or flag, Worshiper, Kaaba of Zoroaster etc. The ideology of Persian kings’ government over society and implementing its political aims, is hidden behind these symbols and signs. The aim of this research is to investigate these symbols with descriptive – analytical method, with a view to concepts and its relationship with the ideology of the Persian kings to achieve their political and religious goals.
