"The Iranian Wine Horn from Pre-Achaemenid Antiquity to the Safavid Age" (1996)
Bulletin of the Asia Institute, 1996, tome/ser. New, vol. 10, p. 85-139.
Abstract: Discusses the rhyton and illustrates several examples from different periods; wine horns were used in the wine banquet, one of the most important ceremonies at Iranian courts, for a symbolic pouring of sacrificial blood. Drinking horns of precious metal terminating in the foreparts of a sacrificial animal are already known from the Achaemenid period, 5th/4th century BC, but the courtly ceremony and thus the manufacture of such horns continued well into the Islamic period.

"The Musical Culture of Eastern Parthia and Hellenistic East: Parallels in Fine Art and Architecture" (1998)
In: "Music Archaeology of Metal Ages," 9th International Symposium of the "Study Group on Music Archaeology", 18-24 May 1998, Kloster Michaelstein in Blankenburg, Germany
Abstract: Rich iconographic material and written sources testify to the highly developed musical culture of Eastern Parthian territories (Parthyena and Margiana). The famous rhythm from Old Nasi, irrespective of the problem of their provenance, are a result of the perception of Hellenistic culture by the early Arsacida. An East-Hellenistic synthesis of the instruments on the Nisa rhythm and Western Parthian parallels on terracottas. A list of Parthian musical instruments in Herodian and Plutarch, the "Asiatic cither" (Strabo), representations on Parthian coins. The minstrely at the courts of Parthian nobles (and rhythm from Olbia). "Musical" friezes of the Nisa rhythm and friezes of Parthian and Kushan architecture, their common genesis, Hellenistic-Eastern synthesis, frieze compositions with the depiction of musicians holding various instruments which alternate with decoration elements (grapes, hop) connected with ritual libation as a trait in common in the architecture of Hellenized East (Hatra, Surkh Kotal, Taxila, Fayaz-tepe, Khalchayan etc.). A problem of "musical" friezes in the architecture of palace-temple complexes in connection with further reconstruction and study of architectonics of standard monumental structures. Unlike Parthyena, Margiana was a centre of distinctive stringed instruments and of peculiar funeral rites of Musian character. The short lute was a traditional folk instrument there (its local name was brabat). The ritual theme of the well-known vase from Old merv and ritual scenes depicting musicians on objects of Eastern tereutics, which are connected with Mihragan, an Iranian and Middle Asian analogy of the Dionysus festivals. The musical culture of Eastern Parthia in the light of new research of hellenistic topics and of the instrumental art of Bactri (Takht-i Sanguin, Zart-tepe, Old Termez, Dal 'verzin-tepe, the Bartym goblet). The confluence of two different art schools - élite and alien that in Parthyena and traditional local that in Margiana- is a synthesis that determined originality of the musical culture of Eastern Parthia.

Abstract: Trajan's Campaign in the East against the Parthian Empire. Game magazine with counters to be punched, rules. "Trajan" covers the Roman campaign in the East against the Parthians A.D. 114-118. It's a two-player game, moderately complex, with an unusual approach -- the map design is based on an ancient map and shows the region as the Roman perceived it instead of using modern maps to show portray it correctly. Hexgrid map of the Mesopotamia area, very nice counters with shield, horse-head, wheel etc. symbols rather than pictographic art. Articles on the title by Joe Miranda.

A single sheet of errata was issued in December 1991.
