Abstract: Fragments of the ostraka discovered by the Russians at Nisa in the 1950s. The ostraka from Nisa are written in the same script as the parchments from Avroman and provide the only other truly contemporary Pahlavi documents. Richard A. Olson [Greek Letterforms, 39 fn.] refers us to this for a discussion of early Parthian epigraphy.

"A Brief Survey of Defensive Armor Across Asia" (2000)
Journal of East Asian Archaeology, 2000, vol. 2, no. 3-4 (Sep), p. 1-22.
Abstract: Scale armor had a long history in the Near East and was almost exclusively the armor of the steppeland nomads. While depictions of Scythians in art seldom show them wearing armor, extensive archaeological finds yield scale armor. The Sarmatians were famed for scale armor which covered their bodies and that of their horses. Scale armor reached its furthest level of development among the Parthian cataphracti. The armor included flexible ring armor for the arms and legs. On the other hand, lamellar armor in the form of a long, caftan-like very supple suit was the dominant type of armor during the Sasanian period and eventually was introduced into Eastern Turkestan and China. The Khalchayan site has depictions of both light and heavy armored figures, but the manner in which the square laminae were joined is not clear. The Kushan rulers of Bactria shown on coins emphasized light cavalry, but later ones are depicted in scale or plate armor with the flexible ring leg and arm armor. As depicted in art, the armor of this area displayed Greco-Roman influences as well as that of the Indians to the south and the nomads to the north. [Author]

"The Excavations At Susa" (1887)
Harper's Magazine, 1887, no. June
Abstract: This informative 21-page, illustrated article is full of facts about the 1881 French expedition by the wealthy Dieulafoy household into Persia to explore the desolate region that in ancient times was the great Persian empires of Artaxerxes and Darius. This article is an extremely well-written summary of the entire expedition by Madame Jane Dieulafoy, one of the principle archeologists leading the venture. She describes in exact detail the topography, climate, difficulties, and discoveries encountered in this great work. Madame Dieulfoy received the French distinction, the Cross of the Order of the Legion of Honor for her indefatigable courage in spearheading this expedition. Very few women have ever earned the Legion of Honor. Some of the prominent sites discovered included the tomb of Daniel, the palace of Artaxerxes, Enameled Lions at the palace gate, palace of Darius, and others. The article takes on the aura of an adventure story as the trek back to the Persian Gulf over 200 miles of desert met with logistical difficulties transporting massive archaeological finds and bandits who harried the travelers constantly. This 1887 article was the first public report of this monumental archaeological find, and the article itself is a fascinating step back to a great day in archaeology. This is not a modern reprint, but rather, the authentic 114-year old magazine article in its original state. There are facts, observations, and insights here that can not be found in any of today's sources. This is a great source of Persian archaeological history. There are 15 engraved illustrations including: The Seal of Artaxerxes - portraits of Monsieur and Madame Jane Dieulafoy - Tomb of Daniel - Transporting the Treasures Across the Jungle - Enameled Brick Staircase - Colossal Lion in Enameled Faience, and others.

"Parthian coins from Mithradates II to Orodes II" (1986)
Numismatic Chronicle, 1986, vol. 146, p. 216-224.
Abstract: This note deals with the attribution of the coins from Mithradates II to Orodes II. A brief review of progress achieved so far concludes that the sequence of coins derived by Morkholm (NC 1980) is satisfactory. By considering the coins of other dynasties contemporary with the Parthians, the cuneiform tablets from Babylonian and the Parthian drachms, conclusions regarding the attributions and duration of each king's reign are reached.

Abstract: "Les monuments de Hatra, ville préislamique située dans la steppe nord-mésopotamienne à environ 50 km à l’ouest de l’ancienne Assur et à environ 80 km au nord-ouest de la Mossoul d’aujourd’hui, sont considérés comme des exemples exceptionnels de l’art parthe. La combinaison d’architecture, de sculpture, d’inscriptions, de graffitis et d’objets nous offre un aperçu tout à fait hors du commun de la vie quotidienne dans une ville parthe du nord de la Mésopotamie pendant les trois premiers siècles ap. J.-C. La période parthe est une époque relativement mal connue de l’histoire de la Mésopotamie, et la documentation provenant de Hatra nous apporte des perspectives extraordinaires afin de mieux comprendre la société, la culture et la religion parthes."

Numismatic Chronicle, 1971, tome/ser. 7, vol. 11, p. 135-142.
Abstract: The styles of the silver and copper coins of Sanabares with Arsacid types suggest that they were struck before the coins of Vologeses I. Pahlavi legends on the copper coins of Gondophares and the absence of Pahlavi on the copper coins of Sanabares suggest, since there is no convincing evidence that there was more than one king with these names, that Sanabares was the earlier of the two. Sanabares was the predecessor of Orthagnes and the contemporary of Phraataces.

Abstract: Discussion of the Parthian "Dark Age".
Parthian kings mentioned in inscriptions and literary sources are correlated with the various of coins from Mithradates II to Phraates III. The evidence is discussed under the headings of epigraphic and literary sources, tetradrachms, drachms, hoards, countermarked drachms and evidence from Susa, including overstruck bronze coins.
