Methodology: The research method is descriptive-analytic and historical-analytic.Based on linguistic information, study of historical sources, the ecosystem of the region, field research, and study of archaeological findings, the location of Ziz and the causes of its deterioration and collapse are investigated and identified in this research
Conclusion: According to the archaeological survey conducted, Ziz is located on the hillside of Mt. Damah on the historical site of Zizenseh in Zizi village in Boyer-Ahmad city. archaeological evidence such as pottery and coins, architectural studies, and historical and geographical sources indicate residence in this city and its prosperity from the first to the sixth century (Islamic calendar). The most important reason for the formation of Ziz can be the rich ecosystem and economic products such as meat and walnut and its location on Arjan communication route to Semirom and Isfahan. However, the most important reason for its collapse is the devastating attacks of the Nizari Ismailis in the fifth century.
