Nanaja - eine ikonographische Studie zur Darstellung einer altorientalischen Göttin in hellenistisch-parthischer Zeit (2003)
Zeitschrift für Assyriologie, 2003, vol. 93, no. 2 (Dec), p. 231-272.
Abstract: Many depictions and representations of the Mesopotamian goddess Nanaja are attested from about the second Century BC until the second Century AD. During this time the cult of Nanaja, equated by the Greeks with Artemis, reached its climax, being attested from Greece and Egypt to far-away Bactria. Her iconographic characteristica are those of a moon-goddess. In cuneiform texts Nanaja is regarded as daughter of the moon-god Sîn, but there are no indications that she was a moon-goddess herseif; so this trait of Nanaja seems to be the result of a late development.

American Numismatic Association
Counterfeit Coin Bulletin (2000-2002)
Colorado Springs: American Numismatic Association, 2000
Abstract: The Counterfeit Coin Bulletin was launched as a joint effort by the American Numismatic Association (ANA) and the International Association of Professional Numismatists (IAPN). It replaced the Bulletin on Counterfeits which had been produced by the International Bureau for the Suppression of Counterfeit Coins (IBSCC) for the IAPN since the 1970s. Unfortunately, in 2003 the ANA no longer felt able to continue with the joint venture. As of May 2004 the IAPN had not announced a successor journal.

"Parthian Gold and Silver: Genuine Coins or Modern Forgeries?" (2001)
Counterfeit Coin Bulletin, 2001, no. Nov
Abstract: A group of silver and gold Parthian coins were declared false in Bulletin on Counterfeits 19/2 (1994/5). The condemnation was challenged and the issue resolved through legally binding arbitration. This article summarizes the arbitrator's final report. Quoting the measured, thoughtful words of a true numismatic scholar, the report is harsh condemnation indeed.

Abstract: Translation of L'art antique du Proche-Orient, 1977.

Photographs by Jean Mazenod. Several of the objects photographed by Mazenod in L'art antique du Proche-Orient that are attributed to the Louvre are actually in the Iraq Museum or, at least, were there in the 1960s. It is possible that they comprised part of an exchange made by the two museums. [Jerome M. Esienberg]

Anagnostopoulos, Nikos (dir.)
Time Sleeps in the Orient (Greek title: Sta prosopa tis Anatolis Kimate o Chronos) (1993)
Greek Film Centre, 1993
Abstract: October 1993
Direction: Nikos Anagnostopoulos
Script: Nikos Anagnostopoulos
Cinematography: Ilias Konstantakopoulos
Editing: Takis Koumoundouros Fani Ziozia

Production: Nikos Anagnostopoulos
The documentary was shot in the Republic of Turkmenistan between the ancient Oxus (Amu Dar'ya) and Jaxartes (Syr-Dar'ya) rivers, south-east of the Caspian Sea and north of Persia and Afghanistan, in a journey that lasted two months. Through the archaeological finds, the sand and the stones, the legends, the songs and the forgotten images, the film attempts to recapture the historic meeting of Greek civilisation with the peoples of the Orient.
Turkmenistan lies at the cross-roads of the most ancient civilisation on earth. In the Kara-Kum (Black Sands) Desert and on the mountain range of Kopet-Dag that stretches from Caspia to India, the film crew came across the ruins of proto-Zoroastrian temples, the birthplace of Zarathustra, ancient Parthia of the Arsacid dynasty and its capital, Nysa, the mythical city of Dionysus. The supreme moment in this captivating documentary, the camera meeting the people. The faces of the Nokhurli, who believe that they are the most ancient inhabitants of Turkmenia bear traces from the passage of history and their souls the deeply rooted conviction that they are descended from Alexander the Great.

In 1991 Nikos Anagnostopoulos made a series of four documentaries for the second channel of Greek Television entitled A History of Greek Coins (in Greek).

L'Empire des Parthes (1755)
In: Crevier, Jean Baptiste Louis, The history of the Roman emperors from Augustus to Constantine
London: J & P Knapton, 1755, 1 p.
Abstract: Map by Jean Baptiste Bourguignon d' Anville (1697-1782), one of the finest cartographers of the 18th Century. He was known for the meticulousness of his work and this set him apart from his European contemporaries. He wanted to create cartographic maps based on astronomic observations and show only those phenomena that existed, thus leaving many empty spaces. He firmly believed that one could not fill a map with fictitious or superfluous material in order to compensate the lack of geographical knowledge available at the time.

Abstract: Article qui développe le court rapport donné dans Iran, 40 (2002) ; cette prospection, intéressante par la méthode développée sur le terrain et dans l’analyse des données, est importante par ses résultats. Le sud du Fars et la région côtière ont été très peu explorés jusqu’à présent et, si on possède une information fragmentaire pour la période islamique, les époques antérieures sont à peine connues par de rapides reconnaissances et l’une des questions est de savoir si l’occupation humaine y était importante alors. La recherche approfondie sur un secteur réduit donne une partie de l’explication (les cartes et le tableau pp. 11-14 sont particulièrement clairs) : un site préhistorique, quatre achéménides, plus d’une dizaine de l’époque parthe, puis le double à l’époque sassanide pour atteindre 50 au début de l’époque islamique. Il faut souhaiter le développement des prospections dans cette région pour confirmer cette évolution, avec un changement net aux époques parthe et sassanide.
