"The Indo-Parthian Beginnings of Gandhara Sculpture" (1987)
Bulletin of the Asia Institute, 1987, tome/ser. New, vol. 1
Abstract: Excavations at the Gandharan site of Butkara (Pakistan) have yielded sculpture, dated numismatically around the beginning of the period of Parthian domination in the area, which displays both subject matter and style similar to that of objects found in the Indo-Greek levels at Sirkap (Taxila). For example, the Parthian-style jewelry represented on Butkara sculpture to that worn by bracket figures from Taxila. The costume of the figures on the Butkara sculptures is undeniably Parthian; it is identical to that shown on the Parthian bronze statue from Shami. [C.A. Bromberg]

New York: McGraw-Hill, 1972
Abstract: Versione inglese de "Il libro del Tappeto" di Fabio Formenton.

Under the heading "The Seleucid and Parthian Dynasties," Formenton writes: "By contrast [to Cyrus], ther is no evidence to validate the use of carpets during the reigns of the other Achaemenian rulers, but there is reliable evidence of the existence of this art during the reigns of the two successive dynasties (Seleucid 312-120 BC and Parthian 170 BC-AD 226)." Unfortunately, he cites none of the evidence.

"Kuwabara's misleading thesis on Bukhara and the family name An" (1996)
Journal of the American Oriental Society, 1996, vol. 116 (Oct/Dec), p. 645-652.
Abstract: Kuwabara Jitsuzo's argument regarding the origin of the surname An is examined. In 1924, commenting on a manuscript by Chen Yuan, Jitsuzo argued that bestowal of the surname An on certain foreigners during the medieval period indicated Bukhara as their place of origin. He based this argument on the assumption that the place-name Anxi had come to be used by medieval times in reference to Bukhara. Kuwabara thus challenged Chen Yuan's assertion that the 12th-century figure An Shitong originally came from Parthia. A close analysis of Kuwabara's arguments and the textual evidence at his, and our, disposal, however, reveals the weakness of his position, especially with regard to An Shitong, and his forced (mis)interpretation of some vital points that would have undermined his assertions.

In: Hekster, Olivier & Fowler, Richard (eds.), Imaginary Kings: Royal Images in the Ancient Near East, Greece and Rome. Oriens et Occidens 11.
Stuttgart: Franz Steiner Verlag, 2005, p. 125-156.
Abstract: "Richard Fowler's wide-ranging survey of Parthian royal ideology (125-56) seeks to demonstrate that the limited evidence available for reconstructing this ideology is insufficient to support the proposition that it drew exclusively or even primarily on Achaemenid models. Analysis of monumental art at Behistun and of royal titulature, portraits, and "virtues" consistently reveals the influence of multiple sources in the making of Parthian royal imagery and ideology, from which Fowler concludes persuasively that the Parthians, like all the other regional powers in the eastern Mediterranean and western Asia after the collapse of the Hellenistic kingdoms, were actively and creatively experimenting in the representation of royal power."

Arsacidarum imperium, sive regum Parthorum historia. Ad fidem numismatum accommodata, Tomus Primus (1728)

Abstract: 2 vols. Vol. 2 has title: Achaemenidarum imperium, sive regum Ponti, Bosphori, et Bithyniae historia. Ed. by Charles de Valois. The first volume, "Arsacidarum Imperium" of Jean Vaillant (b. 1632, d. 1706), was published posthumously. "Vaillant discussed the Arsacid coinage with much historical learning, but his erroneous supposition about the era employed led to an entire misconception as to the main outlines of the numismatic arrangement."
