"Triple arch of Augustus" (1946)
American Journal of Archaeology, 1946, vol. 50, p. 52-59.
Abstract: Mr. Holland seeks in this article to resolve the problem created by the discrepancy between the literary and numismatic evidence for the erection in the Forum of two triumphal arches in honor of Augustus and the archaeological evidence furnished mainly by the foundations of a single triple arch between the temple of Divus Julius and that of Castor, with references to the recovery of the Roman standards lost at Carrhae.

"Statius' Young Parthian King (Thebaid 8.286-93)" (1994)
Greece & Rome, 1994, vol. 41, no. 2, p. 205-212.
Abstract: The writer examines the identity of the young Parthian king mentioned by Statius in Thebaid 8.286-93. He explains that in this passage, Statius compares Thiodamas, son of Melampus, to a young Parthian king who succeeds to the throne after his father's death. Using the evidence of Parthian silver tetradrachms dating from the later 70s and the 80s A.D., the period in which Thebaid was written, he suggests that the young king may be identified as Pacorus II, the younger son of Volagases I.

"Two New Parthian Drachms" (2008)
Journal of the Oriental Numismatic Society, 2008, no. 195 (Spring), p. 4-5.
Abstract: Authors describe two silver drachms bearing Phraates name, apparently minted on campaign in an eastern area of Parthian empire. The conclusion is that they are coins of Phraates IV during his exile to the east and most probably were minted to pay the Scythian army that helped him regain the throne from Tiridates ca. 27 B.C.

Höschel, David (ed.)
Geographica Marciani Heracleotae, Scylacis Caryandensis, Artemidori Ephesii, Dicaearchi Messenii, Isidori Characeni. Omnia nunc primum, praeter Dicaearchi illa, ... edita. (1600)
Augsburg: 1600, 16+207 p.
Abstract: Printed in Greek letter throughout. In the original Greek, first edition of this collection of the works of the minor Greek geographers. The volume opens with a dedication to Johann Georg Herfurth von Hohenburg, councillor to the Duke of Bavaria. This is followed by letters to Höschel from Isaac Casaubon and Joseph Justus Scaliger respectively. After the texts proper follow the annotations by Höschel and the 'Schediasma' on Dicaearcus by Henri Estienne and others. The volume contains most of the surviving texts of Artemidorus of Ephesus (fl. around 100 B.C.). After studying in Alexandria, he travelled extensively and published the results of his investigations in a large work on general geography in eleven books. The original is lost. He attaches much importance to physical geography and to the indication of distances. This last feature was partly a reaction against astronomical geography, which he considers utopian. Dicaearchos of Messina (fl. in the second century) was a pupil of Aristotle and a friend of Theophrastus, to whom he dedicated the majority of his works. The fragments of his geographical treatises were first published in Geneva by Henri Estienne (1589). He estimates the length of the circumference of the earth at 300,000 stades. In measuring the height of mountains he possibly used a diopter. He also notes the influence of the sun upon the tides. Isidorus of Charax (fl. about the first century B.C.) wrote a 'Description of the World', of which only fragments survive. Of his 'Journey around Parthia', likewise only a fragment dealing with pearls and pearl-fishing survives. The text of his 'Parthian Stations' describes the itinerary of the caravan trail from Antioch to the borders of India. Marcianus of Heraclea (fl. c. A.D.400) wrote two geographical treatises, 'Periplus of the Outer Sea', in which he attempts a complete description of the coasts of the eastern and western oceans; and 'Periplus of the Inner Sea', which contains a description of the southern coasts of the Euxine from the Thracian Bosporus to the river Iris in Pontus. Only fragments of these works have survived. Scylax of Caryanda (fl. fifth century B.C.) wrote a sailor's handbook of places and distances around the coast of the Mediterranean and then along the Libyan coast as far as the Carthaginians traded (cf. A. Diller, The Tradition of the Minor Greek Geographers, Oxford, 1952, pp. 24, 51-52, no. Z25). Printed at the celebrated private humanist press, named after its address, "Ad Insigne Pinus" ("At the sign of the Pine Tree"). This press was set up by a group of Augsburg humanists, chief among whom was David Hoeschel (1556-1617), Librarian of the Bibliotheca Augustana, who had been the most famous pupil of Hieronymus Wolf. With the financial assistance of the wealthy member of the City Council, Marcus Welser (1558-1614), himself a scholar of renown, the press was active from 1594 to 1619, specialising in the production of original Greek and Latin texts, all based on unpublished manuscripts. The press's beautiful, clear and elegant Greek type has been identified with that of Robert Granjon: cf. the Fine Printing catalogue of the "Printing and the Mind of Man Exhibition," no.81, and Sandys II, 272. With inscription at the foot of title-page in the hand of the Italian historian Giuseppe Ripamonte (1573-1641) recording that the book was given to him by the Dutch scholar Erycius Puteanus (1574-1646), professor of eloquence in Milan.

"Coinage and military finance: the Imperial bronze coinage of the Augustan East" (1982)
Numismatic Chronicle, 1982, vol. 142, p. 1-20.
Abstract: Two large bronze coinages (CA and SC) struck in the Empire's eastern half under Augustus are examined. The evidence for their mints' location is delineated; a new classification and chronology are proposed. These coinages were struck to meet military expenditure during hostilities with Parthia: the strategic role of the province of Asia during the third decade BC and the preparations for the second eastern expedition mounted in 1 BC are illuminated.

Unpublished paper #42052, read at the Alma Ata Seminar [Almaty, Kazakhstan], 15-17 June 1991
In: The Silk Roads: Roads Of Dialogue, Volume I, Land Routes 1990-1992 (bibliographic database), "Relations between sedentary and nomadic cultures along the major Silk Roads", Alma Ata Seminar (15-17 June 1991)
Paris: UNESCO Publishing, 1991
Abstract: Trading along the Silk Roads obviously involved an administrative aspect. Referring to present-day practices, it would appear profitable to do some research into ancient techniques in this subject. Sealing with clay seals (developed from cuneiform writing on clay tablets) is an extremely ancient practice. The clay seal was commonly used in the Hellenistic world and in the Achaemenid period in Iran. Recent findings at Gebukhi have brought to light some Parthian materials which were very rare before this discovery. Sassanid materials are abundant. The interpretation of these seals is then discussed (label of origin, transit taxes, sender, recipient, etc.). The reader should refer to the Ibn Al-Balkli texts quoted (thirteenth century). It has been established that these seals, in most cases Sassanid, were attached to documents (parchment, papyrus, textile, etc.). -27- The author then analyses the lacing orifices piercing the seals. Two types of systems (A and B) are reviewed with a detailed explanation of their packaging technique or means of attachment to goods or the document which confirm or contradict the Ibn Al Balkli texts. At the end of the paper, the author mentions the possibilities of the existence of wax or even lead seals. [UNESCO bibliographic database]

The Parthian (1960)
New York: Fleet Pub. Corp, 1960, 448 p.
Abstract: Fiction: historical novel. "In all matters of history this book has attempted accuracy in its fictive representation of the dress, customs and institutions of the peoples presented. The accounts of the battles of Carrhae and Praaspa are in accordance with the historical results, and the disastrous invasion and rout of Marcus Antonius is depicted as it occured. The description of the Roman campaign against Otho was typical of the battles waged against the Germani along the Rhine frontier." [Publisher]
Arrows against steel : the history of the bow (1975)
New York: Mason/Charter, 1975, 238 p.
Abstract: Chapt 11, "The Parthians versus Rome" is emminently readable, but Hurley's use of Rawlinson and other outdated sources is a detractor.
Arrows against steel is the written history of the bow as a weapon of war. Few people realize the bow and arrow has been the greatest killer of men in history-greater than the machine gun, the cannon, and even the atomic bomb. It's use throughout history revolutionized warfare and taught the importance of both fire discipline and mobility. This book is the product of 40 years of research by Mr. Hurley. Some of the chapters in this book are the origins of the bow, types and modifications of bows, the arrow as a precision missile, the principles of war, the schools of war, the first appearances of the bow in war, the Persians: a study in retrogression, Macedonia: birth of the dragoons, the problem of mounted war, the testing of the theories of war as done by the Carthaginians, the Parthians, the Romans, and the Huns. The Byzantine abandonment of the bow, the bow in the crusades, the feudal knight: end of an era, the Mongol horse-archers, the English longbowmen,and the Plains Indian. The evaluation of the crossbow, longbow, and composite bow. The infantry archer-the tactical problems, and military tactics of modern war. [Publisher]
