For centuries, the Persian Empire of the Sassanids was the foremost rival to the might of Rome. In this small but powerful portrait of a prince or king, we sense the nobility of character that made the Sassanids great warriors and inspired builders, the inscription translates “Confidence In The Gods”. This faith in divine providence the sitter surely possessed, but he no doubt also displayed an equally strong confidence in himself. - (FJ.0445)
