Nisa Partica : Ricerche nel complesso monumentale arsacide 1990-2006 (2008)
In: Monografie di Mesopotamia - 9
Firenze: Casa Editrice Le Lettere, 2008, xii+404 p.
Abstract: Il centro di Nisa Partica (nell’attuale Turkmenistan meridionale) venne fondato nella prima metà del II secolo a.C. dal fautore dell’impero arsacide Mitridate I (da cui l’antico nome della cittadella Mithradatkert, la fortezza di Mitridate) e fu destinato a divenire un grande sacrario dei re di questa dinastia. L’importanza di Nisa sta nel fatto che essa costituisce una delle prime fondazioni reali della cultura partica ed una delle meglio documentate, grazie a scavi che si susseguono oramai da oltre 70 anni. La produzione nisena illustra in maniera esemplare quelli che sono i caratteri tipici dell’arte e dell’architettura della corte dei primi sovrani partici e per un periodo storico cruciale per l’Asia Centrale: quando cioè, dopo la conquista di Alessandro Magno, si assiste al fiorire di civiltà e culture capaci di assorbire e fondere le tradizioni occidentale ed orientale, sempre elaborando nuove soluzioni artistiche che rimarranno per i secoli a venire.

La missione italiana, attiva dal 1990 nel settore centrale monumentale della cittadella, ha completato gli scavi sovietici del secondo dopoguerra nella Sala Rotonda uno degli edifici più sacrali dell’intero complesso e, adiacente ad essa, ha riportato alla luce una seconda fabbrica monumentale (anch’essa con una qualche destinazione cerimoniale), denominata Edificio Rosso per la sua caratteristica decorazione. In quest’ultimo settore sono emersi, al di sopra delle antiche strutture arsacidi, livelli medievali di un edificio piuttosto esteso.

I dati raccolti durante questi lavori, gli studi strutturali e le proposte ricostruttive degli edifici indagati, le missioni interdisciplinari di studio, analisi e documentazione sugli oggetti (statue in argilla cruda, ceramica, piccoli oggetti, rhyta etc…) condotte nei principali musei della capitale turkmena hanno prodotto una cospicua messe di dati - presentati in un volume ricco di illustrazioni e disegni- che permettono di tracciare un quadro complesso di Nisa: un centro altamente significativo per la nostra conoscenza della cultura partica nelle fasi della sua definizione ed affermazione nei territori dell’Asia Centrale, tra il II secolo a.C. e il I secolo d.C.

Con numerose illustrazioni in b/n. 37 tavole a colori, 7 piante in grande formato contenute in una cartellina allegata. [Publisher]

Abstract: In his review, David Gill (Classics and Ancient History, University of Wales Swansea) discusses many of the pieces selected for this publication which have unreliable provenances. Among these are a Parthian item:

"Another cameo glass piece, a 'Skyphos Showing a Young Satyr with a Syrinx before a Seated Woman' (84.AF.85) (p. 105) is 'said to have been one of a pair found in a Parthian tomb in Iran' (Glass of the Caesars no. 31). Clearly such a find spot would have been significant, but it is almost certainly worthless at least in archaeological terms." [David Gill]

Abstract: Birch-bark of the asiatic-indian 'Betula Bhojpattr' or 'Betula Utilis' used as writing-material in pre-islamic Central Asia. A little regarded commodity on the ancient Silk Routes

Summary
Rarely noticed in a more comprehensive form, birch-bark of the asiatic-indian 'Betula Bhojpattr' or 'Betula Utilis' was used on the Silk Roads on Central Asia in pre-islamic times as writing-material in a much greater quantity than earlier thought by document-specialists; this especially in a geographical region between Merw (Margiana), Bamiyan/ Afghanistan and in the Tarim Basin of Xinjiang/ PR China especially for early buddhist texts, i.e. translations. Until now, the fact that documents were written on birch-bark was more or less seen as a certain curiosity. This article wants to show that birch-bark played a much more important role as writing-material than noticed until today. Birch-bark, as hopefully can be shown, was maybe also a commercial article, even if it was more or less a 'niche'-product which later vanished the markets on the Silk Roads because Chinese paper came to be used. The author tries to list up all known birch-bark-document fi nds until today known and tries to sum up the known facts about this writing-material so very important for early Buddhist texts on the Silk Roads of pre-islamic Central Asia.

Art of the Steppes [Transl. by Ann E. Keep] (1967)
New York: Crown, 1967, 272 p.
Abstract: There is one plate of a Parthian coin.

"The fabulous golden treasures from the ancient burial-grounds of southern Russia and Siberia have captivated man's imagination since they were discovered early in the eighteenth century. Today we know that they were the work of Scythians, Sarmatians and other peoples who roamed the steppes between the sixth century B.C. and the early Christian Era. Some of these tribes were mentioned by the Greek historian Herodotus. Recent excavations, especially those carried out by Soviet archeologists since 1945, have greatly enlarged our knowledge of these peoples — of their way of life, and, above all, of their rich art in "animal style." Graves buried for thousands of years beneath the ice of the Altai Mountains have at last revealed their secrets, and the material they have yielded can compare with the rich Imperial collections in the Hermitage Museum at Leningrad.

"New light has been thrown upon the fruitful contacts between these fierce nomadic horsemen and neighboring settled peoples: Chinese in the west, Persians in the south, Greeks in the west. Professor Jettmar's scholarly yet lively narrative leads us in the footsteps of the robbers who looted these graves and of the first scientific explorers. He describes closely the works they found: jewelry in gold and bronze, precious silks, weapons, and horses' harness; and he puts forward some intriguing ideas about the significance of this art for later developments in eastern Europe and Asia."
