Ctesiphon, also spelled Tusbun, or Taysafun, ancient city located on the left (northeast) bank of the Tigris River about 20 miles (32 km) southeast of modern Baghdad, in east-central Iraq. It served as the winter capital of the Parthian empire and later of the Sāsānian empire. The site is famous for the remains of a gigantic vaulted hall, the Ṭāq Kisrā, which is traditionally regarded as the palace of the Sāsānian king Khosrow I (reigned AD 531–579), although Shāpūr I (reigned AD 241–272) also undertook work on the site. The hall has one of the largest single-span brick arches in the world.
