Orders Issued For Building “Ivan e Kay” in Ray Area
In March 178 BC Phraates I (Farhad I), the king of Iran from the Parthian dynasty ordered erection of a new city in the Varamin area, west of the city of Ray (Shahr e Ray) which was later named ‘Ivan e Kay’. Greek historians have called the new city - Ivan e Kay - as Xarhages. The Greek would write Ray as Rages = Rhages.
