dc.descriptionAbove: Shapur I (241-72), the son of Ardashir, was an enlightened, courageous, magnaminous ruler with an enquiring mind under whom art flourished. A rather better representation of this same scene at Bishapur combines the victories over Philip the Arab and over Valerian (in 260 AD) as here, with that over the Emperor Gordian III (242/3), who is there depicted as being trampled under the horse. Below: Not exactly an ardent warrior according to history.
