The equestrian relief of Hormizd II (r. 303-309)

The equestrian relief of Hormizd II (r. 303-309):

 

This relief is below tomb 3 (perhaps that of Artaxerxes I) and depicts Hormizd forcing an enemy (perhaps Papak of Armenia) from his horse. Immediately above the relief and below the tomb is a badly damaged relief of what appears to be Shapur II (r. 309-379) accompanied by courtiers.
