Looking at the image of "Aradashir's coronation" with the conquered king being stamped on and the priest or god being depicted on the left - the prose describes the priest as having a halo. This appears to be an interpretation rather than a description of the image - I see a wide Aztec style headpiece (similar to a stereotypical Native American chieftains feather headpiece) made from fabric which is bunched together (like hair in a pony tail) at the bottom just below the shoulder. All 3 figures have this wide fabric piece like a wide ribbon, the ribbon is clearer in other depictions from this period. To assess that the headpiece is a halo is a big step and needs some support and close analysis. Are there better images or other depictions that clearly show the Izid with a "halo" or what might be interpreted as such?
For what it's worth I think the article should read "headpiece"; you can't put bunches in a halo. 126.96.36.199 (talk) 16:33, 30 July 2009 (UTC) user:pbhj
