Hormozd Jadhuyih

 

Hormozd Jadhuyih

Hormozd Jadhuyih was a Sasanian commander who is known for his participation at the Battle of Firaz during the Arab invasion of Iran, which resulted in Sasanian defeat. According to al-Tabari, Hormozd's army during the battle consisted of “keepers of chickens and swine.” Hormozd may have been the father of the promient Sasanian general Bahman Jadhuyih, who was already recorded as an old man by 634. Thus Hormozd was probably an old man during the Battle of Firaz.
