|| This room displays a part of the world's finest collection
of Iranian silver dishes and vessels from the era of the Sassanid
dynasty that were found in ancient hoards in the Russian North. The
masterpieces of the collection are two dishes bearing scenes of the
royal hunt: Shapur II Hunting Lions and Bahram Gur and Azadeh
showing a legendary episode from a gazelle hunt of King Bahram Gur.
The display is completed by coins minted under the Sassanid kings
and part of a very rich collection of Sassanid carved stones that
served as seals and amulets.
