They are all at a considerable height above the ground. One of the tombs is explicitly identified by an accompanying inscription to be the tomb of Darius I (c. 522–486 BC). The other three tombs are believed to be those of Xerxes I (c. 486–465 BC), Artaxerxes I (c. 465–424 BC), and Darius II (c. 423–404 BC). The fifth tomb, (incomplete) might be that of Artaxerxes III, who reigned at the longest two years, but is more likely belonged to the last Achaemenid king, Darius III (c. 336–330 BC). The tombs were looted following the conquest of the Achaemenid empire by Alexander the Great.Two Graves in Tomb of Darius INaqsh-e RustamNaqsh-e Rustam is located in Iran Naqsh-e RustamNaqsh-e RustamLocation in IranCoordinates: 29°59′20″N 52°52′29″ESee also[edit]Achaemenid architectureCities of the ancient Near EastList of colossal sculpture in situNaqsh-e RajabBibliography[edit]Herrmann, G. & Curtis, V.
