NEW FINDS AND TOPOGRAPHY OF MIDDLE PERSIAN INSCRIPTIONS IN DERBENT
In 1996, the Derbent archaeological expedition of the Institute of History, Archeology and Ethnography of the Dagestan Scientific Center of the Russian Academy of Sciences conducted visual surveys of the Derbent fortifications in parallel with the excavations of the Sasanian fort (1). As a result of these investigations, five previously unknown Middle Persian inscriptions of the 6th century AD were found on the northern city wall, which were added to the corpus of the Middle Persian epigraphy of Derbent and received numbers 26-30 (2). In June 1997, together with Dr. D. Huff (German Archaeological Institute), while studying the defenses and ancient inscriptions of Derbent, another inscription was discovered, designated No. 31. At the same time, prints of inscriptions were made. All newly discovered inscriptions are vertical (as previously discovered) and are located on the outside of the northern defensive wall of the city, with the exception of 1. Gadjiev M. S.
