Abstract: "Longpérier's book deals only with a portion of the Arsacid series, but contains some valuable historical dissertations and a notice of many unpublished tetradrachms: the engraved plates (not published until 1882), display the series in a very probable and carefully considered sequence, which does not differ greatly from the order determined on by Gardner." -- Wroth [BMC Parthia, xiv]

Abstract: The author analyzes the copper tetradrachms of the winged Nike type issued by the Indo-Parthians in Arachosia (near the modern Kandahar), and on the basis of metrology, paleography and provenance concludes there were two kings named Gondophares, and that the chronological order of the rulers was: Gondophares I, Abdagases, Orthagnes, Pacores, Gondophares II and Arda-Mitra.

Abstract: Alexander the Great's concept of an imperial coinage and his system based on the Attic weight standard had a far-reaching effect on the medium of exchange in Afghanistan and later in NW India. A developed fine coinage emerged with the coinage of the Indo-Greeks, Indo-Parthians and Indo-Scythians. (P.L. Gupta)

Ancient Cities of Iraq : A Practical Handbook (1926)
Baghdad: K. MacKenzie, 1926, 1 ed., 82 p.
Abstract: "In compiling this little guide-book, I have observed two limitations. Firstly, the term "ancient" has been taken to mean "pre-Islamic", and, in consequence, no account is given of the Holy Cities or of Moslem buildings of importance, whether religious or secular. Secondly, directions for reaching sites of archeological interest are only given in cases where the journey is practicable and excavation has rendered the buildings of interest to visitors." [Author]

Iranica diversa (1999)
In: Cereti, Carlo G. & Paul, Ludwig (ed.), 2 volumes; Serie orientale Roma, vol. 84
Roma: Istituto italiano per l'Africa e l'Oriente, 1999
Abstract: C. Cereti and L. Paul edited this two-volume collection of MacKenzie's articles with an appendix containing corrections, revisions and additions by MacKenzie and an extensive word index. MacKenzie took the opportunity to re-set some articles to make up for misprints in the original publication (e.g. his review of R. Schmitt (ed.), Compendium Linguarum Iranicarum, particularly the part covering Humbach's article on Khwarezmian), or to improve on the presentation, though an error in the preparation of the book undid some of this. In the reprint of "Shapur's shooting" (1978), only the philological part is included since he did not want to repeat the speculation in the original because it turned out to be an ingenious effort to explain article concerning [a copy of Shapur's Hajiabad inscription on a silver plaque which S. Shaked (1990) was able to demonstrate as a forgery. [Enc. Iranica]
