The huge and almost freestanding rock-relief carving of one of the last Sassanian Shahinshah shows a horseman in full mail armour with a face-covering mail aventail hanging from the rim of his segmented helmet. He is armed with a heavy spear plus archery equipment and rides a partially armoured horse, (in situ Taq-i Bustan, Iran)
