SELEUCIA or Seleucia on the Eulaeus (Karun) Iran.

The very ancient site of Susa on the Eulaeus river, renamed in Seleucid times. In that period a small Achaemenid palace was drastically restored, and excavations there have brought to light ten stone pedestals of bronze statues, some with Greek inscriptions, part of a female torso in Greek marble, and smaller fragments of statues.


R. Ghirshman, Iran from the Earliest Times to the Islamic Conquest (1954) 236.
