Abstract: Le site de Qal'eh-i Yazdigird peut être défini comme un bassin fermé de quelque 25 km2 surplombant la ville de Sar Pul-i Zohab, à l'extrémité du Zagros, en Iran de l'Ouest. Les deux tiers du périmètre du bassin sont en élévation, ce qui donne à la forteresse de fantastiques capacités défensives. Une partie des fortifications naturelles est formée de falaises dans la zone haute, et, dans la zone basse, la franche dénivellation de l'escarpement qui entoure plus de la moitié du bassin constitue une formidable barrière pour ceux qui tentent d'approcher depuis le bas. Vue depuis la plaine de Zohab, en contrebas, la zone fortifiée apparaît comme un plateau élevé; vu depuis les hauteurs du Zagros qui le surplombent, le bassin se présente comme un prolongement de ce haut massif auquel il se rattache sur près d'un tiers de sa circonférence.

A Chronological Study of the Marcomannic Wars of Marcus Aurelius (1995)
Princeton, NJ: Princeton University Press, 1995, 295 p.
Abstract: Princeton University. The thesis is a reconsideration of several questions of chronology and interpretation concerning the Marcomannic wars of the emperor Marcus Aurelius. It is argued that, already before Verus' Parthian triumph in October 166, major Roman initiatives on the northern frontier were in train which indicate a planned offensive, not a defensive reaction. These plans were thwarted, partly by plague, but mainly by the abruptness of the attack whereby, in the summer of 167, the Marcomanni and Quadi pierced the limes and reached northern Italy. Dislocation in the coin supply, the effects on the careers of several Roman officials, and the creation of a special praetentura to guard the Alpine approaches to Italy in 168, supplement the meagre literary evidence to give a date of 167 for this invasion, rather than the commonly held 170. After a tour of the Danube lands in 168 and the death of Verus early in 169, Marcus made Carnuntum his headquarters for three years. A peace with the Quadi enabled him to focus a great Roman offensive on the Marcomanni in 170. This offensive was disastrously defeated; the praetentura held the Germans out of Italy, but the provinces were devastated, and the limes were breached at several other points. But by the end of 172 the Marcomanni had come to terms. Arguments purporting to date the 'weather miracles' to 172 or 173 are based on misinterpretations of evidence on the coins and the column of Marcus. In 173 the Iazyges were defeated in Pannonia, and again, in the winter of 173/174, in a battle fought on the frozen Danube. Beginning in 174, the evidence of the column comes into play; it helps date the 'rain miracle' against the Quadi to this year, followed shortly by the 'lightning miracle' against the Iazyges, with Marcus, now based at Sirmium, in attendance. By the opening of the campaign of 175, the Quadi and Marcomanni both had treaties; nothing here indicates an annexationist policy. As for the Iazyges, some sources mention extermination as a possible Roman objective, but not annexation. In any case, a successful offensive against the Iazyges was interrupted by news of Avidius Cassius' eastern rebellion. News of Cassius' assassination reached Marcus shortly after his peace with the Iazyges, but he contented himself with the exaction of large military levies from the Danubian tribes. By 177 the northern provinces were again insecure; Marcus sent tried commanders to the lower Danube. The attention of Marcus and Commodus was focused on the Marcomanni and Quadi when they left Rome in August 178. A hard-fought victory in 179 was followed by the physical occupation of the territory of the Marcomanni and Quadi; to judge by the column reliefs, the war was one of slaughter and intimidation, and annexation seems the inevitable aim. But any such plan lost impetus after the death of Marcus in March of 180. Even after a successful campaign, Commodus withdrew Roman forces south of the Danube; not even after his triumph did he affect GERMANICUS or SARMATICUS on his coinage. [Author]

Queens of the Armenians (1998)
Yerevan: Amaras, 1998
Abstract: This book on the Queens of the Armenian royal court is a continuation of the author’s previous work, Royalty: 141 Armenian Kings. The queens of Armenia are defined as wives of sovereigns of Armenian state formations, and for that purpose nationality is not a decisive factor. Among the 150 queens described in this book, 103 are Armenian, one is Assyrian, eight are Parthian, six are Persian, two are Alan, nine are Greek, six are Roman, four are Georgian, ten are French, and one is Mongol.

Abstract: Includes coin with diademed Parthian style head right within wreath / "Mithradates King of Tosp(?)." Khurshudian records four examples of similar coins, all with left facing heads. The coins were found in the vicinity of Armenia, all but one from archaeological excavations.

Abstract: Photograph shows a four-handled bronze Parthian coffin excavated near the city of Khorramabad in Lorestan Province. The 180cm-long four-handled coffin resembles a bathtub, and was found to contain a unique skeleton with a gold blindfold covering its eye sockets and a gold gag over its mouth. Conservators are optimistic that an inscription may be concealed beneath sulphurous corrosion staining the coffin’s surface.

"Myrina and Related Forgeries" (1985)
Museum Notes, 1985, vol. 30, p. 45-68.
Abstract: Several modern struck forgeries of 2nd century BC wreathed tetradrachms of Myrina are identified, ranging in date from the 17th to the 20th centuries. Some appear to have been produced by a workshop operating in Baghdad ca. 1900, which is also shown to have been responsible for a series of Seleucid, Parthian and other counterfeits. Among the 'Baghdad' forgeries which have previously been accepted as genuine are two varieties of tetradrachms of Tigranes the Great. (P. Z. Bedoukian, Coinage of the Artaxiads of Armenia, p. 49 no. 16 and p. 52 no. 27). [Author]
