Gomishan in "The Banner of Kaviyan"Edit
Gomishan was a fortress and surrounding village in the Persian province of Tabaristan. This and similar fortresses helped keep Tabaristan independent of the conquering Arabs who had occupied the rest of Persia at the time of Shahin's quest for the Banner of Kaviyan. Shahin's father was the dihqan of Gomishan.
