[Title? a new facing head drachm of Elymais] (1976)
In: Proceedings of the VII th International Congress of Iranian Art and Archeology, Munich, 7-10 Sep 1976
Munich: 1979, p. 346-348.
Abstract: Describes a new facing head drachm with Artemis reverse and an Aramaic legend naming "King Orodes, son of Orodes". She identifies this ruler with the Kamnaskires-Orodes known from tetradrachms, who ruled at the beginning of the second century A.D., and notes that the drachm would appear to contradict Le Rider's hypothesis that only small bronzes were struck at Susa in this period.

Abstract: Records a bronze tetradrachm belonging to the late series of Spasinou-Charax with a legend clearly reading P T (=Phraates), a new ruler for this period. Another possible specimen is the worn tetradrachm in the Cabinet des Medailles whose legend Le Rider reads as BA, which he expanded to "Phobas". [Houghton, "Syria and the East", 1986, p. 193]]

"The History of the Parthians" (1856)
In: Farr, Edward (ed.), Ancient History: Containing the History of the Egyptians, Assyrians, Chaldeans, Medes, Lydians, Carthaginians, Persians, Macedonians, the Seleucidæ in Syria, and Parthians from Rollin, and other Authentic Sources, both Ancient and Modern, Volume IV.
Cincinnati: Moore, Wilstach, Keys & Co., 1856, p. 341-362.
Abstract: A very readable and succinct history, written in a charming mid-nineteenth century tone with a strong Christian moralist undercurrent, but substantially factual even in the light of more modern research and finds. Unfortunately, it only makes passing reference to the sources and Farr fails to defend such positions as the Parthian orgins being indigenous Persian, not Saka or other immigrant peoples.

"The Parthians in Augustan Rome" (2005)
American Journal of Archaeology, 2005, vol. 109, no. 1 (Jan), p. 21-75.
Abstract: This article considers the conception and commemoration of foreigners, especially Parthians, as diagrammed in the triumphal imagery of Augustan Rome. The interaction of Trojan and Parthian iconography during the Augustan period is analyzed, as is the new attitude toward the representation of foreigners that developed in Rome during the early Empire, when barbarians were presented as contributors to peace rather than its opponents. The focus is the general topographical context of the Parthian Arch on the east side of the Roman Forum, but the article also includes new iconographic readings of the Primaporta cuirass, the Ara Pacis, the Basilica Aemilia Parthians, and the altar from the Vicus Sandaliarius, as well as triumphal monuments in Athens, Corinth, and Antioch-in-Pisidia. The cuirassed figure facing the Parthian on the Primaporta breastplate is identified as Roma, and the Eastern woman and child on the south frieze of the Ara Pacis are linked to the Parthian royal family resident in Rome during the Augustan period. A triumphal arch celebrating Gaius Caesar’s success over the Parthians is reconstructed between the Basilica Aemilia and the temple of Divus Julius, and its decoration was clearly designed to complement that of the adjacent Parthian Arch and the Temple of the Dioscuri. The imagery on the eastern side of the Roman Forum can be read as a program outlining the Julian dynasty’s involvement with the Parthians, and suggesting that the East had finally been domesticated.

Towards Roman Edessa: 114-242 C.E. (1997)
Abstract: The ancient city of Edessa (modern-day Urfa, Turkey) is studied from the point of view of politics, society and culture during a period of increasing Roman involvement in the East, beginning with Trajan's Parthian War (114- 116 C.E.). Well-watered and located on an important trade route, Edessa (founded ca. 304 B.C.E.) saw major urban development in the Seleucid period, but came under Parthian influence at the end of the second century. Its rulers--the Abgarid dynasty with Arab/Nabataean connections--pursued a semi-independent policy until Edessa came permanently within the Roman orbit under Septimius Severus (194 C.E.). The dissertation clarifies the process of absorption into the empire using epigraphic, numismatic and historical material, some recently discovered. Analyzing newly published documents and the coins of Edessa's last king, Abgar X (239-242 C.E.), it concludes that this king took his throne in service to Rome during the confrontation with Sassanid Persia, holding an official 'consulship,' perhaps signifying a regional governorship. A major section takes up the cultural life and antecedents of Edessa, which in the later period became a center of Christian activity and an important link in the transmission of Classical literature via Syriac and Arabic. Focusing on Edessene religion, on Bardai san, the 'first Syriac philosopher,' and on artistic influences as reflected in funerary mosaics, it concludes that the period beginning with Abgar VIII was a Golden Age of prosperity and cultural production. Greek, Semitic and Persian cultural influences contributed to a unique culture that could be called neither 'eastern' nor 'western' in its primary orientation. Although the earliest preserved Syriac literature contains concepts derived from Greek philosophy, evidence for the first two centuries of the Common Era is scarce, and no firm conclusions can be drawn about the extent of Hellenization at Edessa before the arrival of Christianity. The famous myth of an exchange of letters between a King Abgar and Jesus is shown to have no basis in fact, and not to reflect--as has been widely thought-- the conversion of a later king to Christianity.
