At Paikuli, located in what is now the southern part of Iraqi Kurdistan near the modern-day village of Barkal, Sulaymaniyah Governorate, Iraq, are the remains of a stone masonry tower that was erected as a monument to a victory enjoyed by the Sasanian emperor Narseh over his grandnephew. The inscription is now housed in the Sulaymaniyah Museum.

Base map by Ryan M. Horne for Pleiades and the Ancient World Mapping Center (ancient terrain after the Barrington Atlas). Map interaction design and implementation by Sean Gillies, David Glick, Alec Mitchell, and Tom Elliott for Pleiades.
