The article discusses the contents of the lost Middle Persian Khwadāynāmag on the basis of Arabic and Classical Persian sources, using the figure of Rustam as a case study. The results imply that Rustam had at most a marginal role in the Khwadāynāmag. Stories about him were transmitted to Arabic literature through other channels, including translations of other historical works from Middle Persian into Arabic.
