In this stone relief, the Sassanian king - Bahram II (274-293 AD) is shown on horseback. He has a beard and long hair and is wearing a winged crown which looks like the wing of an eagle. The king also has a tight jacket, loose trousers and a cape over his shoulders so that both of its sides are attached to the jacket with two buttons. On the right side of Bahram, a heavy quiver dangles from his belt. The horse of the king is beautifully decorated and, as usual, in the Sassanian reliefs, a blanket is seen on the right side of the saddle. A commander is standing in front of the king, with a dress and hair style similar to the king, showing that he is either of a high rank or belongs to the royal family. The shape of his body has been depicted in full face and in such a way that both arms are placed over the abdomen and on the sword in a state of respect so that its long blade is perpendicular to the ground and between his legs. Behind him, three full-length Arab elders, and only heads and chests of three other people are visible. They are presented with gifts such as horses and camels in front of the king. All six are wearing long robes and a kind of Arabic headcover called kefiyeh.
