The large areas of the lands of Proto-Elamite period from the west to the east of Iranian plateau indicates the importance of that period and requires a special attention to the Proto-Elamite expansions. Although according to some information and data such as the Proto-Elamite contexts, a number of researchers consider the sudden break of the Proto-Elamite era and regard the evolutionary trends up to the old Elamite era as a vague question but some of the important areas of the Proto-Elamite period such as Susa, Malian, Yahya, Shahr-i Soukhteh, and Hessar, that all have the main Proto-Elamite period sign, i.e. the inscriptions, have subsequent trends in the expansion, continued up to the old Elamite era and even later. It has been tried in this study to consider the state of the transformation trends by analyzing the data in the Post-Proto-Elamite areas with the required subsequences such as pottery and seals. In order to present the answers for the questions regarding the state of cultural changes after the Proto-Elamite era and whether the sequence of deployment was gradual, or changed all at once to a new culture in the subsequent periods. Despite the differences in different regions, and with respect to some variations in some data, the sequence of deployment from the Proto-Elamite to the old Elamite eras can be observed through the information gathered in this study.
