Sapor (Shāpūr) ii. dies 379.
Ardashir ii. succeeds 379, Aug. 19.
Sapor iii. succeeds 383, Aug. 18.
Bahrām iv. succeeds 388, Aug. 16.

Bahrām v. succeeds 420, Aug. 8.
Yezdegerd ii. succeeds 438, Aug. 4.
Hormizd iii. succeeds 457, July 30.
Pērōz came to the throne in 459, but counted from the first year of Hormizd, whom he deposed.
Balāsh succeeds 484, July 23
Kobad (Kavādh) succeeds 488, July 22; died Sept. 13, 531.
The dates given are those of the beginning of the Persian year in which the king succeeded and from which he counted, not the actual days of accession; and are taken from Nöldeke, Excurs i. to his Geschichte der Perser und Araber zur Zeit der Sassaniden. Thus Bahrām v. did not actually possess the throne till 421 (spring).
