As we know Sassanid kings have used the Titles such as «čihr az yazdān» means «The Race of God», «ēr» means «noble», and «Ērān ud Anērān» means «Iran and non Iran» in Inscriptions, Coins and Seals. The Titles Ērān and Anērān have been used by Sassanid kings(Ardaxšīr I, Šahpuhr I§ II, Narseh and Kirdīr the Priest of Priest of Sassanid period). What is clear that the concept of “Ērān” is also used in religious sense which is ended to political one and finally to a territory because Kirdīr explained the concept of Ērān and Anērān in his inscription. In fact disappearance of this title was due to the emergence of Kirdīr and his struggle in the structure and organization hierarchy of Zoroastrian Priest and the Sassanid Kings had gotten the mundane task and to became just as good Zoroastrian kings in Iran. Another reason of the gradual elimination of the Titles of Sassanid kings may be the defeat of Sassanid kings on the Romans and the loss of the territories where once was part of Iran and also the territories which called Anērān, that Sassanid kings ruled over them. They had to give these lands and lost the title Anērān.
