چکیده :
Since the Sassanid period is one of the most productive periods of ancient Iranian history, there is a great deal of evidence from this era and more information can be gained by relying on these documents. Goddesses have long held a special place in the historical era of Iran and have been worshiped. The Sassanid period also has many goddesses, but among them the glory of Anahita is heightened. Anahita is water goddess in myths and is portrayed in prominent Sassanidreliefs with a different look, so the issue raised in this article is that the evidence from the Sassanid era shows the influence of the kings on goddesses, especially in the field of clothing. The purpose of this research is to study the crowns of Goddess Anahita in the prominent reliefs of the Taq-e-Bostan and the Naghsh-e-Rostam in this period both in terms of content and appearance structure. The research method is historical-analytical and descriptive, and the data is effective based on library studies, books and valid documents. The question of this text is about the cause of different kinds of crownsin this goddess in the above mentioned motifs, andit is explained by determining the reasons and studying each of them in both the present structures and the permanent link between religion and power, and the tendency to depict Zoroastrian saints in the form of power.
