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.
