چکیده    Ferdowsi's mythological epic--the shahnameh--is a treasure of original persian words and expressions. centuries after its production, it still has enough merit to be researched and re-discovered. many scholars have researched the different literary and linguistic aspects of it, but none to our knowledge has scrutinized the book from the perspective of 'semantic shift' yet. this paper aims at showing how the persian expression 'sang bar cebu zadan' (meaning 'stoning the jar') has gone through a diachronic semantic shift whereby losing its original meaning with which it was first used in ferdowsi's epic--the shahnameh. to expatiate upon the original meaning of the expression, we resort to the story of saiavash's 'passage through fire' as the test of his innocence.
