The "Lost" Ten Tribes of Israel...Found! (1995)
Boring, Oregon: CPA Books, 1995, 2 ed., 436 p.
Abstract: Traces migrations of exiled House of Israel from Palestine to Northwestern Europe through Scythia, Parthia, Phoenician colonies, and sea routes. Shows little-known history of the missing 18 years of Jesus from age 12-30, when He began His ministry. Parthia, equal and rival to the Roman Empire, was led by Israelites who were deported from their homeland in Palestine. The "Lost" 10 Tribes of Israel are located through their migrations via sea routes to northwestern Europe and overland routes via Parthia, Scythia, and eastern Europe. The magi who gave gifts to Jesus were Parthian nobility who chose and monitored descendants of the royal House of David as the only ones eligible for the Parthian throne. [Publisher]

The Development of Trajan's Political Program in the Coin Reverses of the Roman Mint (1981)
1981, 342 p.
Abstract: The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The purpose of this dissertation is to analyze the coin- types of Trajan in order to define the development of his political program on the coin reverses. The coinage of the Roman mint is chosen because it is assumed that this mint was under the direct control of Trajan and his advisers. The coin-types of the Roman mint thus offer an 'official' political program for the reign of Trajan. This political program may be divided into two broad periods: A.D. 98-107 and A.D. 107-111. Within the years A.D. 98-107 the coin-types establish the main theme of the political program as warfare, especially in the presentation of the Dacian campaigns. The emperor is presented as the Imperator Invictus, the general who will succeed because he is endowed with Virtus, the virtue necessary to be a successful and victorious commander. After the return of Trajan to Rome in A.D. 107, a new political program is published on the coin reverses. The aim of this program is the establishment of stability in Italy through the care provided for the young, for the farmers of Italy, and for the general population. The concern of the emperor for the welfare of the young and the continuation of a prosperous stability is indicated through the appearance of Aeternitas and the new usage of Spes and Libertas. In this period the emperor is endowed with new virtues, Felicitas, Aequitas, and Salus, so that, as in the earlier period, he is presented not so much as a participant in this program as the source of its inspiration and achievement. The coin-types from A.D. 112-117 present old themes: the Dacian Wars are commemorated in the coin-types which celebrate the dedication of the Forum Traiani and the theme of warfare recurs with the commencement of the Parthian Campaign. This campaign is presented on the coinage through references to specific events; this is a sharp contrast to the depiction of the Dacian Wars on the coin reverses of A.D. 101 to 107, for there the events had been neglected in favor of a deeper symbolic content won through the usage of divinities, personifications, and the depiction of the emperor as Imperator Invictus. This change in the presentation of the Parthian War probably reflects the fact that no further symbolism could be derived from the sphere of warfare and that the symbolic content established in the Dacian Campaigns could not be challenged by the events of a later war.

From Aristotle to Zoroaster : an A to Z companion to the classical world (1998)
New York: Free Press, 1998, xi+483 p.
Abstract: Orignially published in Great Britain in 1998 by Pimlico as The Pimlico dictionary of classical civilizations.

This is a groundbreaking and authoritative reference to the classical era of the Old World that encompasses the civilizations of Greece, Rome, Persia, India and China in a single, comprehensive volume. The author asserts that these societies, traditionally studied separately, had much in common and even laid the foundations of present-day Europe and Asia. Cotterell includes the complex interrelations that once existed between the Greeks and the Persians, the Macedonians and the Indians, and the Romans and the Parthians. The book covers historical milestones from 600 BC through 600 AD. Alphabetical entries feature cross-references, maps, illustrations and an index. [Publisher]

"Indo-Scythian Coins from Pakistan" (1977)
In: Coins Hoards, vol. 3
1977, p. 108-113.
Abstract: A group of 77 Indo-Scythian and Indo-Parthian silver drachms and tetradrachms is said to have been acquired in Peshawar, Pakistan. The nature of the group suggests it is a whole or partial hoard. The coins range in date through the reigns of Azes I, Azilises, and Azes II, with a single tetradrachm of Gondophares. It seems likely that the hoard was deposited when Gondophares was encroaching upon the western part of the kingdom of Azes II. [E. Marles]

After Alexander: Central Asia Before Islam (2007)
In: Proceedings of the British Academy ; 133
London: Oxford University Press, 2007
Abstract: This is a new study of the history, archaeology and numismatics of Central Asia, an area of great significance for our understanding of the ancient and early medieval world. This vast, land-locked region, with its extreme continental climate, was a centre of civilization with greatmetropolises. Its cosmopolitan population followed different religions (Zoroastrianism, Christianity, Buddhism), and traded extensively with China, India, the Middle East, and Europe. The millennium from the overthrow of the first world empire of Achaemenian Persians by Alexander the Great to thearrival of the Arabs and Islam was a period of considerable change and conflict. The volume focuses on recent investigations in Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan. It provides a complex analysis of the symbiosis between the city life based on oases, and the nomadic peoples grazing their animals in the surrounding semi-deserts. Other topics include the influence of the Greek colonistson military architecture, and the major impact of the Great Kushans on the spread of Buddhism and on the development of the Central Asian metropolis. And although written documents rarely survive, coinage has provided essential evidence for the political and cultural history of the region. These essays will be of interest to the scholar, the student, and the armchair traveller. [publisher]

"Roman descendants found in Gansu : Lijian Ruins" (1998)
Beijing Review, 1998, vol. 41, no. 46 (Nov), p. 19-20.
Abstract: A Roman connection with Lijan, an ancient city located in Zhelaizhai Village, 10 kilometers south of the county seat of Yongchang, Gansu Province, China, has been confirmed by archaeologists from China and other countries. Lijan was built to accommodate a group of Roman captives, but the question of how the captives came to be in Gansu was never resolved until now. Due to scholars' consultations with historical books with the assistance of related departments in Gansu, records have been found to resolve the 2,000 year-old puzzle. It appears that the Romans may have wandered into China following a bloody war between Rome and Parthia, present-day Iran. [Author]

Iran : 2500 ans d'art perse (2004)
Paris: Hazan, 2004, 261 p.
Abstract: See especially pp.47-78 "Arsace ou le refus du temps" about parthian history and art with many illustrations.

La région iranienne, plus vaste que le territoire de l'Etat d'aujourd'hui, a connu depuis les temps les plus reculés une expérience culturelle extraordinaire. Son art a continuellement puisé à des sources hétérogènes et apparemment lointaines (le monde méditerranéen d'un côté, l'Inde et la Chine de l'autre, l'immense Asie centrale faisant le lien) pour les fondre en un langage nouveau et autonome destiné à servir de source d'inspiration pour d'autres cultures (Arménie, Géorgie, Indes, pays du Levant, Samarkand, etc.). Cette continuité culturelle et artistique explique le parti inédit de cet ouvrage : embrasser en un livre unique l'époque préislamique (en ses trois plus importantes phases à partir du VIIe siècle avant J-C. : achéménide, parthe et sassanide) et l'époque islamique (du VIIIe siècle après J.C. au XVIIIe siècle) qui connaît une de ces apogées à travers les canons " persans " et enregistre elle aussi des influences romaines, chinoises, mais se nourrit en permanence de la tradition perse comme un idéal. Toutes les disciplines artistiques sont abordées, des grands reliefs monumentaux achéménides et sassanides à la céramique et à la célèbre miniature persane, sans oublier l'architecture, l'orfèvrerie et les arts du textile.
