- See Ray, Iran for the city of Ray, south of Tehran.
Located in the Arjan (ارجان) region, the city was also called Riu-Ardashir (ریو اردشیر).
In particular, some historians such as Yaqut al-Hamawi's Mu'jam Al-Buldan write of the city being centered around a pre-Islamic academic center of higher learning where scholars converged to study medicine as well as Indian and Greek sciences.
