Shah-pour

,

the Great (Sapor II.). Surnamed Zu-lectaf (shoulder-breaker), because he dislocated the shoulders of all the Arabs taken in war. The Romans called him Postʹhumus, because he was born after the death of his father Hormuz II. He was crowned in the womb by the Magi placing the royal insignia on the body of his mother.
