The present paper introduces the Shahugat inscription which was recently discovered near Tabaktal village in Chahan district near Nikshahr in Sistan and Baluchestan Province. This inscription refers to some events which occurred in the early eighth century on the southern coasts of Iran and can be matched with certain icidents which have been recorded in historical sources. The conflicts among the rulers of the southern rregions and islands of Iran, such as Shiraz, Hormoz, Kish, and Qeshm, in order to gain control of the roads and commercial benefits not only in the Persian Gulf and Makran Sea regions but also on the coasts of India were one of the reasons for some people seeking shelter in the highlands of Makran and engraving this inscription.
