The Tamam Shud Case also known as the The mystery of the Somerton Man is an unsolved case of an unidentified man found dead at 6:30 a.m. December 1st, 1948 on Somerton Beach in Adelaide, South Australia. It is named after a phrase Taman Shud meaning "ended" or "finished" in persian on a scrap of the final page of the Rubaiyat found in the hidden pocket of the man's trousers. What appeared to be a secret code was scrawled on the back of the page. While the case has received the most scrutiny in Australia it also gained international coverage. Many details including the Somerton man's identity and the significance of the code remain a mystery.
