And the hopeless mental state of affairs of Vis’s husband, Mobad, glints wearily from persistence to self-assertion to fury and again back. The origins of Vis and Ramin, are vague. the tale dates from the time of the Parthians (who governed Persia from the 3rd century bce to the 3rd century ce), and definitely existed in oral and maybe written shape earlier than the 11th century Persian poet Fakhraddin Gorgani composed the model that has come right down to us
