Each measuring 6.70 m in height, the double commemorative columns of Bishapur stand on the city center at the intersection of its two main streets (the northern-southern and the western-eastern axes).A 16-line inscription in Parthian and Sassanian Pahlavi script and language can be seen on one of the columns; this is regarded as the official document for the establishment of Bishapur. In the text of this historical document, the builder of Bishapur has been introduced as Ipsay the secretary who comes from Haran, a town in ancient Syria now situated in Turkey.
