Jones, Terry
Terry Jones' Barbarians (2006)
In: 4 episodes.
London: BBC
Abstract: Terry Jones' Barbarians is a 4-part TV documentary series first broadcast on BBC 2 in 2006. It was presented and written by ex-Python Terry Jones, challenging the received Roman and Roman Catholic notion of the barbarian. Professor Barry Cunliffe of the University of Oxford acted as consultant for the series.

The series was broadcast in four episodes, "The Primitive Celts", "The Savage Goths", "The Brainy Barbarians" [includes the Parthians and Sasanians] and "The End of the World".
Jones, Terry & Ereira, Alan
Terry Jones' Barbarians (2007)
London: BBC Books, 2007
Abstract: "In the Monty Python film Life of Brian, a member of the People's Front of Judea asks, "What have the Romans ever done for us?" (apart from, of course, the "sanitation, medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh water system and public health"). The director of that movie—and now popular historian—Jones (Who Murdered Chaucer?), along with Ereira (The People's England), now answer the question: a bit, but nowhere near as much as the barbarians did. Jones attempts to overturn the popular conception of the glorious Roman Empire, which he says is mostly propaganda, and claims that the barbarians—a general term describing the tribes of western and northern Europe, as well as of the Middle East—have for too long been slandered as "savages" by the allegedly more advanced and civilized Romans and their descendants. In fact, these assorted Celts, Vandals, Persians and Goths were technologically, economically and intellectually sophisticated, but were on the wrong side of history. While scholars will sniff at Jones's offhand humor, somewhat wide-eyed "revelations"—which have been revealed before—and tendency to believe the vastly exaggerated death tolls of the time (he relies on Plutarch's figure that Julius Caesar slaughtered a million Gauls, a virtually impossible feat), readers will go along for a most enjoyable ride and appreciate his fascinating tale of the barbarians' lost world. 24 pages of color photos, maps.

"A New Syrian Mithraic Tauroctony" (2000)
Bulletin of the Asia Institute, 2000, tome/ser. New, vol. 11
Abstract: A Mithraic relief recently acquired by the Israel Museum shows the god Mithras in the act of killing the bull. Mithras wears a Phrygian cap and Parthian-style clothing: a long-sleeved tunic with a short mantle fastened to his left shoulder and a pair of Parthian trousers or leggings. This costume is worn by Mithras only in Syria, where Parthian dress was popular among upper-class Syrians.

The Works of Flavius Josephus, translated by William Whiston
Abstract: Includes Antiquities of the Jews, War of the Jews, The Life of Flavius Josephus - Autobiography, Josephus's Discourse to the Greeks concerning Hades and  Flavius Josephus Against Apion.
The Jewish war / Josephus ; with an English translation by H. St.J. Thackeray (1997)
In: Loeb classical library ; 487, etc.
Cambridge: Harvard University Press, 1997
Abstract: Greek text and English translation on opposite pages. Contents:
--1. The life. Against Apion.
--2-3. The Jewish War.
--4-9. Jewish antiquities
"Of other classical sources, among the most valuable are the works of the Jew Josephus. Time after time from numismatic or written sources Josephus can be proved correct, even against such factually accurate writers as Tacitus. Passages in Josephus containing apparent errors can often be understood when considered as brief resumes which omit much not directly connected with the main thread of the narrative. Josephus utilized the works of another oriental, Nicolaus of Damascus; his first edition of the Jewish War was prepared for Jews living under the Parthian empire. Babylonian Jews were passing to and fro across the frontiers, and Josephus was probably able to correct and supplement his sources from them. Possibly the story of Anilaeus and Asinaeus represents such firsthand information" [Debevoise (1938), p. xxix]

Julius Capitolinus
The Life of Antoninus Pius by Julius Capitolinus. Translated by David Magie, Ph. D., for the Loeb Classical Library (1921)
Abstract: IX. ".... He appointed Pacorus king of the Lazi, induced the king of the Parthians to forego a campaign against the Armenians merely by writing him a letter, and solely by his personal influence brought Abgarus the king back from the regions of the East. He settled the pleas of several kings. The royal throne of the Parthians, which Trajan had captured, he refused to return when their king asked for it, and after hearing the dispute between Rhoemetalces and the imperial commissioner, sent the former back his kingdom of the Bosphorus...."

The Seleucid and Parthian terracotta figurines from Babylon : in the Iraq Museum, the British Museum, and the Louvre (1995)
In: Series: Monografie di Mesopotamia vol 4
Florence: Casa Editrice Le Lettere, 1995, 228 p.
Abstract: The dissertation is on the terracotta figurines of Seleucid and Parthian Babylon, which form the most important archaeological finds of the period in both Babylon and other parts of central and southern Mesopotamia. The material consists of Babylon figurines in the collections of the Iraq Museum, the British Museum and the Louvre. Comparisons are also made with figurines from these collections with provenance in other localities, as well as the material of the Vorderasiatisches Museum of Berlin and the Seleucid material of the Centro di Scavi of Turin. All the figurines of this study have been analysed and parallels have been sought for them. A typology and relative chronology were constructed for them with reference to style. There are analyses of products of the same workshops and of the distribution of figurines. The role of Iranian, western and traditional Mesopotamian influences in coroplastic art is discussed. The study also focuses on phenomena typical of figurine production at the time: the shift from double-mould to single-mould technique and related aspects of technique and artistic content. The results suggest that the renaissance of coroplastic art in Babylon did not occur until the Parthian period when several new western themes and techniques were adopted. It also appears that western coroplasts arrived in Babylon along with other settlers. There is little evidence of a uniform development of coroplastic art from the Seleucid to the Parthian period. The core area of Parthian art is not to be found in Babylon. In their typical forms, Parthian sculpture and painting developed under various influences, of which the western element is not as pronounced as in the Babylon figurines.

Hatra (videorecording: 25 minutes) (1980)
In: The Anthony Roland Collection of Films on Art
Abstract: Also available in Finnish. 25 minutes. Color. Recommended audience age range 14-adult

"Hatra is a fortress-like town in the barren desert area in north-west Iraq, between Mosul and Samarra. The Hatra era lasted from about 400 BC to AD 300, and was at its height during the first century AD. Although the earliest phases of its history remain unknown, it can perhaps be considered the most important monument of the ancient Mesopotamian cultures. It was a major staging-post on the famous oriental silk road and its prosperity was based on the international caravan traffic. The center of Hatra consists of a group of temples. The most important is the temple dedicated to the Shamash or sun god; other heavenly bodies had temples of their own. The group of temples has been partly restored and exemplifies the unique Hatran architecture: an elegant combination of eastern and western influences. Excavations of Hatra have only just started. The town itself has not been uncovered yet but we are able to see the temples, the tombs, the wall and the remains of towers. Impressive examples of Greek-influenced Hatran art, with its statues of kings and all kinds of smaller items, can be admired at the National Museum of Iraq." [Author]

Monumental Art of the Parthian Period in Iran (1983)
Columbia University: 1983, 483 p.
Abstract: Columbia University. The art of the Parthian period in Iran is characterized by regionalism reflecting the politics of the time. The rock reliefs and stone sculptures discussed are concentrated in the west and southwestern areas of the country; virtually no monumental works are known from eastern Iran. The sculptures attributable to the Arsacid dynasty which nominally ruled Iran are distinguished by naturalistic style, technical expertise, and often by classical imagery. The more numerous pieces associated with the virtually independent regional rulers demonstrate a lively local iconography reflecting influences from Syria to northwest India, but are less accomplished technically. These regional works are further subdivided on the basis of stylistic and iconographic details. [Author]
