CTESIPHON AVOIDED. Note this passing comment in a widely published article on the capture of an apparent terrorist training camp (quoted here from the Guardian):

In attacking the military base, the Marines kept away from the nearby ruins of Ctesiphon, a Persian capital - its main architectural wonder, the 3rd century, 99-foot-high arched dome of King Sapor's great banqueting hall, still standing.
