"Markoff's unpublished coins of the Arsacidae" (1893)
Numismatic Chronicle, 1893, tome/ser. 3, vol. 13, p. 203-219.
Abstract: "But little has been written on Parthian numismatics, with the important exception of Markoff's Coins of the Arsacidae, St. Petersburg, 1892 (text in Russian), in which, as also in Mr. Rapson's able review of the work (Num. Chron., 1893, p. 203 f.), some new coins of the highest importance have been made known." -- Wroth [BMC Parthia, p. xv.] Wroth also mentions this article as Rapson proposed the possibility of some dates on coins being in the Parthian Era instead of the Seleucid Era.

The sixth great Oriental monarchy; or, The geography, history, & antiquities of Parthia, collected and illustrated from ancient and modern sources (1873)
In: The seven great monarchies of the ancient eastern world
London: Longmans, Green, and Co., 1873, xiii+[2]+458 p.
Abstract: Rawlinson's later work Parthia (1893) is mainly an abridgement of The Sixth Great Oriental Monarchy (1873). "George Rawlinson based most of this work on Classical sources, but he did use other sources available to him in translation and his work remained a standard history of ancient Iran for many years. It should be mentioned that the vast lands in eastern Iran (including Afghanistan) and Central Asia were largely untouched in Rawlinson's writings." [Frye, xi]. See review: "Almost, if not wholly, free from the sins and offences of his earlier books... It was well that the history of this monarchy should be written in detail." [Sat. Rev., xxxv. 818]

Gesegnet sei dieser Tag. Manichaeische Festtagshymnen. Edition der mittelpersischen und parthischen Sonntag-, Montags- und Bemahymnen (2004)
In: Berliner Turfantexte 22
Turnhout, Belgium: Brepols, 2004, 214 p.
Abstract: The book (a long-awaited revised version of the author's PhD thesis) contains the edition (with translation and commentary) of a number of fragments (some Middle Persian, some Parthian) the text of which may be assigned to hymns designed for certain Manichaean holidays. There are chapters about these holidays, about MP/Prth. hymns in general, metrical analysis etc., a glossary and photos of all fragments which have not been published recently. [Agnes Korn]

The Manichaean literature includes a great number of hymns, poems and prayers. Some of the best preserved parts of them are dedicated to the Manichaean holy days, Sunday, Monday and the annual Bema festival. These holy days are primarily important because of the confessional rituals which took place at this time. Though most of the hymns are incompletely preserved they allow some conclusions on the distinction of these feast days. The hymns are in Parthian and in Middle Persian, but were presumably copied by Uigur scribes during the period of the 8th to the 10th centuries AD. In this volume nearly 50 fragments of book pages are edited and examined. Nearly all are published here for the first time. Some of them contain lists of initial lines, listed with regard to the contents or according to melodies. The detailed introduction deals with the Sitz im Leben of these hymns, a comparison with the relevant hymns in other languages such as Coptic, Chinese and Uigur and a description of versification and stylistic means. This material makes new Manichaean original sources available and extends our knowledge about the liturgical traditions of the Manichaean community on Central Asia. [Publisher]

Antiquity, 1929, vol. 3, p. 434-451.
Abstract: Translated from the German by Roland G. Austin (Glasgow University).
Plates accompanying the article include four phenominal air reconnaisance photos (pl. 1-4 ) of the arch of Ctesiphon. This report of excavations attributes the arch to Sasanians as their capitol city. The old Tigris river flowed between Seleucia and Ctesiphon, but its course has changed since antiquity to flow through Ctesiphon, dividing it and placing a large portion of the ruins on the same side of the river as Seleucia.
