Stone treasure: The stone under which the median statue has been found. The signs on the rock show an antic treasure map, which maybe lead to more hidden treasures in the surrounding area.

The find spot of this statue is located on an 2200 years old hill in the former Median Empire. Even in other tombs of this region similiar statues and figurative representations of those goats had been found. The treasure symbols which had been engraved into the stone obviously indicate further hidden treasures. But it's not very clear which information is written on that stone. Along with the statue, further archaeological findings have been excavated.
