"A Greek coin hoard from Susiana" (1965)
Acta Archæologica, 1965, vol. 36, p. 127-156.
Abstract: The hoard, found in 1958 or 1959, consists of about 200 silver tetradrachms, 124 of which are listed. The burial date, ca. 140 B.C., has implications for eastern Seleucid issues down to this date. Some of these coins are ascribed to a new mint at Antiochia, later known as Charax Spasinou. See the review by W. Schwabacher in Hamburger Beitrage sur Numismatik, vol. 7, no. 21 (1967), pp. 282-283.

Abstract: Hoard #77 is a small hoard of some 73 coins of Characene which appeared on the market in 1976. All were struck under Attambelus I (47/46-25/24 B.C.) and Thionesius I (25/24-20/19 B.C.), for both of whom new dated issues are recorded. [Houghton, "Syria and the East", 1986]

"The Parthian Coinage of Seleucia on the Tigris c.90-55 B.C." (1980)
Numismatic Chronicle, 1980, tome/ser. 7, vol. 20, p. 33-47.
Abstract: The tetradrachm coinage of Seleucia on the Tigris is arranged in a chronological sequence by purely numismatic criteria. It is arguued that the evidence derived from coins is more important than the sparse written evidence for reconstructing the so-called Parthian "Dark Age," the period between the death of Mithradates II and the firm establishment of Orodes II as king of the Parthian empire. The attribution to different rulers is still a matter of speculation. [Author]

Using numismatic criteria only, Mørkholm reached a different conclusion from A. Simonetta [QT 7 (1978), 95-119] about the number and sequence of kings at Seleucia on the Tigris during the Parthian "dark age", c. 90 B.C. and c. 55 B.C., excluding within his chronological sequence both Vonones and Pacorus. He acknowledges that the attribution of coins to different rulers is still much a matter of speculation, but argues that the written evidence for the period is so fragmentary that the most reliable documents are the coins.

Abstract: A study is made of the coins in circulation in Armenia from the 5th century B.C. to the 3rd century A.D. Achaemenid, early Armenian (Orontid dynasty), and Macedonian coins are mentioned. The coinage of the Artaxiads is investigated and Bedoukian's classification (ANSMN 14) is adopted. The Roman coins of this period withthe legends ARMENIA and ARMENIACUS are discussed along with some Parthia coins relating to Armenia. [Paul D. Bedoukian]

History and coin finds in Armenia : Antiquity (2000)
In: Series: Inventory of coin finds in Armenia, Part I, Moneta 17
2000, 184 p.
Abstract: Contains a table of Parthain coin finds in Armenia notable for the small quantities found; almost all finds listed are single drachms or bronzes, no tetradrachms. However, the range of rulers represented by the finds is extensive including 18 rulers from Mithradates I to Vologases III. [ECDH]

Khatchatur Mousheghian prepared a publication of hoards and site finds from Armenia. Completed, with new studies, this documentation is now published. In this book are published catalogues of hoards: Artashat (70 BC and 59 BC); Armenia (55 BC); Artik (45 BC); Parakar (38 BC); Sarnakounk (25 BC); Tovuz (25 BC); Aparan (2 BC); Gurmi and Artashat (1st c. BC); Echmiadzin (175); Garni (192); Oshakan (3rd c.); Yerevan (5th c.). A list of site finds in Armenia (coins from 4th c. BC to 5th c. AD) and a list of Armenian coin finds out of the actual Republic of Armenia are given.

Two studies complete the general analysis of coin circulation. One is devoted to hoarding in the first Century BC (with Sarnakounk hoard) and the second is devoted to the study of second Century denarii hoards in the Roman Empire (with Echmiadzin and Garni hoards). These two studies summarize all the new studies about silver coin hoards and give new interpretations of this kind of coin circulation. [Publisher]

"Some observations on the metrology of the Indo-Greek and Scytho-Parthian coins" (1970)
Journal of the Numismatic Society of India, 1970, vol. 32, p. 144-149.
Abstract: The indo-Greeks struck coins in northwestern India on a weight standard different from the Attic one which were meant to meet local demand for coinage on a locally known standard and relate the intrinsic value of silver coins of Bactria with that of silver issues in northwestern India. [P. L. Gupta]
"The dates on certain coins of Sanabares" (1970)
Journal of the Numismatic Society of India, 1970, vol. 32, p. 199-200.
Abstract: Dates in Pahlavi on the coins of Sanabares which are attributed to the Seistan area are reckoned in the Arsacid era. Sanabares was apparently a ruler of Merv, whose coinage may be related to the Gondophares group. [P. L. Gupta]
"The location of the mint of some Indo-Parthian coins (1971)
Journal of the Numismatic Society of India, 1971, vol. 33, p. 110-111.
Abstract: Seistan is identified as the mint of some of the copper and billon coins of Gondophares, which bear a Greek legend only and show obv.: seated figure, and rev.: winged Nike. [P. L. Gupta]
"An interesting coin of a Parthian (?) ruler called Bannega" (1974)
Monthly Bulletin of the Asiatic Society, 1974, no. August, p. 7-8.
Abstract: A debased silver coin with obv.: bearded bust and Parthian legend [Sa Banaga] meaning King (?) Banaga and rev.: male seated on throne holding bow with legend in corrupt Greek, of which only part is legible, and read as BANNEGA, was struck on a weight standard of later Parthian drachms and issued in the era of Vologases I in an area where imperial Parthian drachms with this device circulated. It is not certain whether the ruler was an independent king or acknowledged the nominal suzerainty of an Arsacid overlord. Two other coins of this ruler are mentioned. [P. L. Gupta]
"A Variety of Silver Coin of Sanabares" (1981)
Numismatic Digest, 1981, vol. 5 Pt. 2, p. 19-22.
Abstract: An Indo-Parthian coin bears the name of Sanabares in Pahlavik or Arsacid script on the obverse but does not carry it in the Greek legend on the reverse. Rather, Toggidata appears there. Thus, the piece may represent a joint rule. (P.L. Gupta)
"An Interesting Scytho-Parthian Coin" (1983)
Journal of the Numismatic Society of India, 1983, vol. 45, p. 27-30.
Abstract: One of the 29 Scytho-Parthian coins which were found in the Swat region of Pakistan and which were published earlier by G. Le Rider (Revue de Etudes Gracques Vol 80 [1967] p. 331) is presented. It depicts an enthroned female, the first appearance of a Scytho-Parthian queen, with the Greek inscription Badillddex Qeotropou Macenex on the obverse and a standing Zeus withthe Kharoshthi legend Rajatirajsa Mahatas Moasa. The hoard also contained 16 specimens of Maues with Zeus on the obverse and a winged Nike on the reverse. The remaining dozen pieces were assigned to Vonones and Spalahora. (P.L. Gupta)
