"La découverte des Parthes et l'archéologie d'époque parthe" (2002)
In: Boucharlat, Rémy (ed.), Les Parthes: l'histoire d'un empire méconnu, rival de Rome
Dossiers d'Archeologie, 2002, no. 271, p. 18-21.
Abstract: La période parthe, en général étroitement liée à l'époque séleucide, a longtemps été connue principalement par les informations fournies par les sources classiques et par les monnaies qui, à partir du XVIIIe siècle, ont été classées, et qui ont posé les fondements de l'historiographie de cette période. L'étude des monuments de cette époque a été longtemps négligée en Iran, probablement en raison du fait que ceux-ci ne pouvaient soutenir la comparaison esthétique avec les restes achéménides et sassanides. Il en était de même en Mésopotamie car les vestiges parthes étaient peu visibles sur le terrain et, de plus, généralement moins intéressants que les périodes de la tradition biblique, caractérisées par des monuments en pierre ou en brique cuite d'excellente qualité et fournissant des briques et des tablettes inscrites.

In: Boucharlat, Rémy (ed.), Les Parthes: l'histoire d'un empire méconnu, rival de Rome
Dossiers d'Archeologie, 2002, no. 271, p. 72-79.
Abstract: Hatra et Assour sont les principaux établissements parthes de la Djéziré irakienne. Ils offrent les témoignages parmi les plus remarquables de la culture parthe occidentale, notamment dans le domaine de l'architecture. En ce qui concerne l'art figuratif, Hatra possède un ensemble de sculptures richissime qui n'a pas d'équivalent à Assour, mais la peinture murale, si riche à Doura-Europos, n'y est témoignée que par quelques documents, mais des traces omniprésentes montrent qu'elle devait être très répandue. À Assour par contre, les restes de peinture à l'intérieur du palais, quoique plus rares, semblent témoigner d'une plus grande richesse dans la complexité des compositions et dans la variété des couleurs.

Abstract: "La culture de l'Empire parthe, qui succéda à la culture séleucide et s'étendit de la Parthie originelle – en Asie centrale – vers l'Iran et la Mésopotamie, représente une phase cruciale de grande effervescence culturelle et de renouvellement artistique dans l'histoire du Proche et du Moyen-Orient. Cependant, les données en notre possession permettant son évaluation historique précise sont peu abondantes." [Author]

"Nabataea, India, Gaul, And Carthage - Reflections on Hellenistic And Roman Gold Vessels and Red-Gloss Pottery" (1994)
American Journal of Archaeology, 1994, vol. 98, p. 231-248.
Abstract: The Nabataeans were as famous in antiquity for their gold as they are today for their pottery. Their gold vessels have disappeared, but their red-on-red painted pottery survives in profusion. Both the forms and decoration of much of this pottery have analogies in extant Parthian silverware. Nabataean gold vessels may lie behind the pottery (which should no longer be called ''luxury'' ware). The same picture emerges from an examination of the sources relating to India: gold vessels were imported in quantity from the Roman world, but only red-gloss pottery survives to suggest what the range of imported and local goldware might have been. Judging from the evidence relating to Gaul and Carthage, the same model may have applied to Gaulish sigillata and African Red Slip ware, and by extension to red-gloss ceramics throughout the Mediterranean.

"Metrological reflections : Attic, Hellenistic, Parthian and Sasanian gold and silver plate" (1995)
Studia Iranica, 1995, vol. 24, no. 2, p. 163-185.
Abstract: Silversmiths regularly tried to make silver vessels in "round" figures in terms of local, or traditional, weight standards. In the case of classical and Hellenistic Athens, of Ptolemaic Egypt, of the Hellenistic world in general, and under the Parthian and Sasanian empires, these weights corresponded to contemporary currency standards, so as to enable the owner to continue to use plate as large denomination coinage. Weight inscriptions on vessels, which hitherto have been taken as evidence for fluctuating weight standards, are interpreted instead as an indication that the vessels were weighed with worn coinage that continued to circulate. The standards themselves did not change. [Publisher]

Beirut: American University of Beirut, 1974, p. 15-26.
Abstract: One Parthian drachm and two tetradrachms recently acquired by the American Numismatic Society have prompted a review of the coinage attributed to Phraates III (ca. 70-57 B.C.). Mint marks on the drachm suggest the possibility of a date. The two tetradrachms together provide new numismatic evidence which alters with almost certainty the relative position in the chronological sequence of certain coins assigned to the immediate predecessors of Phraates. [Author]

Reports important new tetradrachms of (Sellwood 1971 types 30 & 34), and also explains the use of letters in the fields of some drachm issues (Sellwood 1971 types 38-40) as dates. Also discusses the evolution of the attributions of these coins. Importantly, Waggoner includes an excellent plate of 17 Parthian coins, among them Sellwood (1971) 40/9 missing from the plates in Sellwood's book.

"The Western Border of Buddhism, Margiana: The Question of Parthian Buddhism." (1998)
In: [Proceedings of] The The Third Silk Road Conference at Yale University, July 10 - 12, 1998
1998
Abstract: The existence and nature of Parthian Buddhism from archeological data, Chinese sources, and philological evidence are to be briefly illustrated here. The continuity of Buddhism in Margiana and the other Buddhist sites in former Soviet Central Asia from the first to seventh century CE is to be demonstrated from the perspective of both art historical and textual findings. Some researchers seem to have a problem with the identification of An-sok in Chinese with the Parthian dynasty in Iran and the others doubt the existence of Buddhism in the Oxus region in the early Kushan period. Nevertheless Russian archaeological data based on numismatic evidence, the inscriptions in Karosthi, and the study of the Chinese Buddhist texts translated by the Parthian monks indicate the early onset of Buddhism in the Oxus region including Margiana.

Money On The Silk Road: The Evidence from Eastern Central Asia to C. AD 800 with a catalogue of the coins collected by Sir Aurel Stein (2004)
London: British Museum Press, 2004, 192 p.
Abstract: This book focuses on the money of Eastern Central Asia to c. AD 800, a period of over 900 years, across a vast geographical area with a very diverse population of different cultures and traditions. The only relevant historical accounts are those found in the Chinese dynastic histories, yet these contain few references to money in Eastern Central Asia. This study therefore depends almost entirely on the archaeological evidence for money found at sites in the region, in the form of coins and contemporary documentary evidence. The book is arranged in four parts. The first part presents the background to the study, the second the numismatic evidence, the third gives the evidence for money in the contemporary documents excavated at sites in Eastern Central Asia, and the concluding part brings together the data from the numismatic and documentary evidence to create a new framework for money in early Eastern Central Asia. [Publisher]

Table of Contents:
Part 1. Background, sources and the approach. The Silk Road and Eastern Central Asia; Money on the Silk Road. Part 2. The numismatic evidence. The Stein collection of coins from Eastern Central Asia; Coins of the Chinese tradition; Coins of the Western tradition; Coins of local manufacture. Part 3. The documentary evidence. Chinese documents: wood slips (1st century BC-4th centuries AD); Kharoshthi documents (3rd-4th centuries); Chinese documents: paper documents (4th-8th centuries); Khotanese documents (7th-8th centuries); Tibetan documents (8th-9th centuries). Part 4. Conclusion. Money in Eastern Central Asia to c. AD 800: a new framework. Plates; Maps; Bibliography; Appendix; Index.
