Beyond the eastern frontier of the Roman Empire lay the territory of the Sasanians, a dynasty that originated in southern Iran. Between the early third and mid-seventh centuries, the Sasanians ruled a vast empire that extended from Mesopotamia to parts of Central Asia. Some Sasanian glass was similar in form and decoration to Roman production, but other pieces were inspired by a specifically Iranian style. No Sasanian glass collection of comparable size and variety has yet been published, and thus the objects at Coming provide a starting point for anyone who wishes to study the glass made in the Sasanian Empire.
