As you can read here, Excavation in Dashtestan in the southern province of Boushehr has led to the discovery of a stone inscription in New Babylonian language and a relief of the Achaemenid King, Darius.

This is the inscription:

I put it on the gate of ...!

Maybe "The Ishtar Gate of Babylon", Can it be an inscription of Cyrus the Great? Of course it is said that the palace has been built by Darius the Great but the inscription can be older than the palace.
