CARMONIANS ( 2Es 15:30 , AV [Note: Authorized Version.] Carmanians ). A people occupying an extensive district north of the entrance to the Persian Gulf, between Persis on the west and Gedrosia on the east. They are said to have resembled the Medes and Persians in customs and language. The name survives in the present town and district of Kirman . In the above verse the reference is probably to Sapor I. (a.d. 240 273), the founder of the Sassanid dynasty, who, after defeating Valerian, overran Syria, and destroyed Antioch.
