Art History

Susa, the major city in ancient Elam, was founded about 4000 B.C. in what is today the Iranian province of Khuzistan. At the beginning of the second millennium B.C., Susa became a rich metropolis at the crossroads of a highly developed trade network. Wealth further increased through trade with Mesopotamia, and masterpieces of Mesopotamian art were later seized as war booty.
