Abu Tahir Khosrovani (Persian: ابو طاهر خسروانی‎‎) was a 10th-century Persian who lived in the Samanid Empire. He was a native of Khorasan, and lived during the lifetime of the famous Persian poet Rudaki. Much of Abu Tahir's poetry, however, has disappeared and only a few are in existence, which are quoted by several Persian poets such as Asadi Tusi. Abu Tahir later died in 953.
