Wahrām / Narseh Inscripiton at Bēšāpūr (NVŠ)

This is an inscription in Bēšāpūr which was initially inscribed by the order of Wahrām, showing him receiving the diadem of rulership from his father. However, when Narsē came to the throne, he replaced Wahrām’s name with that of his own. Narsē had been bypassed by several contenders to the throne and finally as the Great King of Armenia (Wuzurg Arman Šāh), he set for Ctesiphon to take what he thought was his right. The grudge against Wahrām is apparent in his action at the Bēšāpūr inscription.
