American Oriental Society, New Haven, Connecticut, 1953," and Joseph Upton's Catalogue of the Herzfeld Archive.
Date/Time and Place of an Event Note:
Ernst Herzfeld first visited Naqsh-i Rustam in November 1905 during his expedition return from the Assur (Kalat Schergat, Iraq) excavation. During the two last months of 1923 as well as early March 1924, in addition of his work on the terrace of Persepolis, Herzfeld spent time at Naqsh-i Rustam checking the inscriptions. In 1928, the architect Friedrich Krefter joined Herzfeld in Persia, in an expedition funded by the Notgemeinschaft der Deutschen Wissenschaft, to complete various measured plans and drawings in Persepolis, Pasargadae, and Naqsh-i Rustam. On March 1, 1931, now under the auspices of the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago, excavations at Persepolis were begun. Ultimately, in 1933, attention was directed to Naqsh-i Rustam, where Herzfeld traced the outer enclosure of the site and copied the inscription on the tomb of Darius I. Ernst Herzfeld left Persepolis permanently in Spring 1934.

Date/Time and Place of an Event Note:
Ernst Herzfeld first visited Naqsh-i Rustam in November 1905 during his expedition return from the Assur (Kalat Schergat, Iraq) excavation. During the two last months of 1923 as well as early March 1924, in addition of his work on the terrace of Persepolis, Herzfeld spent time at Naqsh-i Rustam checking the inscriptions. In 1928, the architect Friedrich Krefter joined Herzfeld in Persia, in an expedition funded by the Notgemeinschaft der Deutschen Wissenschaft, to complete various measured plans and drawings in Persepolis, Pasargadae, and Naqsh-i Rustam. On March 1, 1931, now under the auspices of the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago, excavations at Persepolis were begun. Ultimately, in 1933, attention was directed to Naqsh-i Rustam, where Herzfeld traced the outer enclosure of the site and copied the inscription on the tomb of Darius I. Ernst Herzfeld left Persepolis permanently in Spring 1934.

Date/Time and Place of an Event Note:
Ernst Herzfeld first visited Naqsh-i Rustam in November 1905 during his expedition return from the Assur (Kalat Schergat, Iraq) excavation. During the two last months of 1923 as well as early March 1924, in addition of his work on the terrace of Persepolis, Herzfeld spent time at Naqsh-i Rustam checking the inscriptions. In 1928, the architect Friedrich Krefter joined Herzfeld in Persia, in an expedition funded by the Notgemeinschaft der Deutschen Wissenschaft, to complete various measured plans and drawings in Persepolis, Pasargadae, and Naqsh-i Rustam. On March 1, 1931, now under the auspices of the Oriental Institute of the University of Chicago, excavations at Persepolis were begun. Ultimately, in 1933, attention was directed to Naqsh-i Rustam, where Herzfeld traced the outer enclosure of the site and copied the inscription on the tomb of Darius I. Ernst Herzfeld left Persepolis permanently in Spring 1934.
