Among several small objects found within the ruins of the fire temple excavated by the Turkmen-Polish team at Mele Hairam were four small bone plaques of the late Parthian period. Although badly preserved, these plaques are important both as evidence of ancient Zoroastrian iconography and as unique scenes depicting ritual acts that were performed inside the fire temple.
