If you go by the definition of Europe in the Wikipedia article, the Caucasus, including Lazica, Iberia, and Albania, are in Asia. Admittedly, Derbent may be in Europe and thus I'm happy to admit Sasanian Iran had territory in Europe in that case. Based on the list of provinces on the template and general reading, Rhodes wasn't a province so it's not a relevant point, in my opinion. Mugsalot (talk) 16:20, 14 May 2018 (UTC)
"2. And I possess the lands of Persia, Parthia, Xuzestan, Mešan, Asurestan, Nodširagan [=Adiabene], Arbayestan, Athurpatakan, Armenia, Wirzan [=Iberia], Sigan, Albania, Balasagan, up to the Caucasus mountains and the gate of the Alani, and the entire range of the Elburz mountains, 3. Media, Gurgan [=Hyrcania], Merv, Harew, and all of Abaršahr, Kerman, Sakestan, Tugran, Makran, Pardan, Hindestan, Kušanšahr up to Pešawar (?) and until Kašgar (?), Sogdiana and Taškent, and on the far side of the sea Mazun (=Oman)."
As you see, both Parthia and Abaršahr are mentioned in RGDS. They are not the same, at least not in early Sassanian period. Aryzad (talk) 19:03, 17 April 2019 (UTC)
They are the same . They are literally situated in the same area. --HistoryofIran (talk) 19:07, 17 April 2019 (UTC)
Where is Parthau?! It's Parθaw in original Parthian text. Aryzad (talk) 19:20, 17 April 2019 (UTC)
