1924 is hardly antiquity.  People now living still remember the event.
And are we to suppose that not one single document survived Stalin's
abominable book-burners?

In addition,
claims that the use of az-latn in Iran is not unknown, and in fact that
most Azeri-speaking Iranians understand it.

In might the Feanorians / that swore the unforgotten oath
brought war into Arvernien / with burning and with broken troth.
and Elwing from her fastness dim / then cast her in the waters wide,
but like a mew was swiftly borne, / uplifted o'er the roaring tide.
