Summary

As the battle of Pashan continues, the Iranians start to gain control, but then Prince Rivniz, one of the sons of Kai Kavus, is killed, and his crown falls to the ground of the battlefield. Both the Iranians and the Turanians turn their focus to retrieving the crown until Bahram, son of Gudarz, rushes into the fray and scoops up the crown with the tip of his lance. Although both sides suffer many losses, the Turanians finish victorious.
