856 AD – an earthquake hits Damghan, Iran killing 200 000; making it the 6th deadliest earthquake in history!
I discovered something new! While researching Aži Dahāka I found out that there is a dinosaur named after the persian word for dragon, the Azhdarchidae. This has to be one of the strangest looking dinosaurs that ever lived! I used this dinosaur as inspiration for today’s dragon.
