Wikipedia Greater Iran

Greater Iran (in Persian: ایران بزرگ Irān-e Bozorg, or ایران‌زمین Irānzamīn “Iranian soil”) refers to the regions that have significant Iranian cultural influence. It roughly corresponds to the territory on the Iranian plateau, stretching from the Caucasus in the west to the Indus River in the east and conforms to the historical understanding of the full territory of “Iran.” It is also widely referred to as Greater Persia in European languages,[1][2][3] while the Encyclopædia Iranica uses the term Iranian Cultural Continent.[4]
