There have been doubts aboutinclinationsof Arsacids towards Iranian culture and traditions. Some researchers, in their recent studies, have shown evidence against this idea. In addition to ancient cultural and artistic links of Patria Province with Iranian traditions and culture, the manifestations of cultural, political and social traditions of Iranian in the long era of Arsacidsareconvincing evidence against the above-mentioned approach. In this study, we attempted to portray major continuous relations of Iranian old traditions from periods of ancient Iranian history to Arsacids era. Moreover, we attempt to answerweather or not ancient Iranian traditions in this period were dynamic and flourishing? Based on the findings of the present research, no significant interruption and disconnection in Iranian traditions in the Arsacids era could be found. Also, at this period of time, the cultural, political, and social structure of the Iranian society showed special loyalty to ancient Iranian traditions. However, some of these traditions passed through Arsacid Iran to Sasanids era. Therefore, it is perhaps more logical to avoid putting extra emphasis on cultural detachment in Arsacids era, and it is better to speak of one historical and cultural progression and continuation.
