"The first comprehensive catalog of the Elymaean series since the J. de Morgan’s 1930 publication by, this book draws upon the extensive amount of evidence that has surfaced since then and synthesizes the wealth of recent scholarship on this important, yet little-known kingdom that flourished in the region comprising southern Iraq and western Iran from the late 2nd century BC to the early 3rd century AD. Divided into two parts, the first gives an overview of the history of Elymais and its coinage. A brief introduction describes the geographic, geopolitical, and cultural background of the region, and sets the stage for the following discussion of the three dynasties that ruled that kingdom. Using de Morgan as a point of departure, the author meticulously analyzes the various, and often conflicting, studies on Elymaean coinage that have been written over the last half-century, and draws conclusions based on the most recent evidence. As the kingdom's history and coinage are closely tied to its Seleucid and Parthian neighbors, the author has particularly benefited from the recent scholarship on these empires by D. Sellwood, G.R.F. Assar, A. Houghton, and C. Lorber. The first part concludes with a technical description of the coinage system, detailing its mints, iconographic types, and metrology.

"The catalogue of coins comprises the second part and traces the coinage of the three Elymaean dynasties: the Early Kamnaskirids, the Later Kamnaskirids, and the Arsacids. Each ruler's coinage is presented by general type, followed their respective subtypes, all of which are accompanied by illustrations for ease-of-use. As much of the later coinage is found in relatively poor condition, often numerous illustrations of each subtype are included, sometimes supplemented by the author’s own meticulous line drawings.

"A particular strength of the book is the features that were included to assist researchers and collectors. One such aid is the "Easy Finder" at the end of Part One, which provides a schematic chart for quick identification of a coin's general type. In addition, Appendix 1 provides a concordance chart for each type to the previous standard works that are often used in earlier studies and catalogs, while Appendix 2 provides the sources for all of the illustrations in the catalog, including each coin's weight, die axis, and size, as well as any relevant die links. Finally, a bibliography of the works cited lists the relevant historical and numismatic works that form the basis of the study.

"This well-researched book will be the new standard reference for the coinage of Elymais, and will prove beneficial not only to numismatists and collectors, but those interested in the history of this fascinating kingdom." [Publisher]
