The Seleucids : The Decline and Fall of Their Empire (1999)
In: Series : Rozprawy Wydzialu Historyczno-Filozoficznego ; t. 91
Krakow: Polish Academy of Arts and Sciences, 1999, 143 p.
Abstract: Translated from the Polish by Bruce Duncan MacQueen. See review by Jana Pecirková in ARCHIV ORIENTÁLNÍ, vol. LXVIII, no. 2, May 2000
As he embarks on a new analysis of the history of the Seleucids, Professor Wolski does not follow the old method, which viewed every fragment of history as a separate whole. The Seleucid state was a continuation of the monarchy of Alexander the Great and of the Achaemenids before him, and it inherited from its predecessors all its obstinate troubles. Impressed by Alexander the Great's campaign, the historians overlooked the obvious truth that the conquest itself could not have resolved all the pervasive problems that haunted the Achaemenid state. And then, the Achaemenids' Asian heirs, the Seleucids, were faced by many new challenges. One aspect that has so far been taken little notice of was the resistance of the local population. The book sheds new light on the history of the fall of the Seleucid monarchy. [Publsiher]
Seleucid and Arsacid Studies : A progress report on developments in source research (2003)
Krakow: Polish Academy of Arts and Sciences, 2003, 104 p.
Abstract: Translated from the Polish by Teresa Baluk-Ulewiczowa.
Since the publication of his history of the Arsacids (1993) and his review of the causes of the downfall of the Seleucid dynasty (1999), Professor Jozef Wolski has been continuing his work on the sources for the history of the Hellenistic Orient. It has led him to new research results based on the Graeco-Latin sources, primarily Strabo and Justin. The analysis of recently discovered Babylonian sources has proved useful as well. The dozen or so reviews of his recent work which have appeared in Poland and abroad called for a response. All of these factors, enhanced by the author's new ideas on the subject, have contributed to the emergence of this book on the history of the Seleucids and Arsacids.. [publisher]

"On the rearrangement of Parthian coinage" (1900)
Numismatic Chronicle and Journal of the Numismatic Society, 1900, tome/ser. 3, vol. 20, p. 181-202.
Abstract: "In studying these and other new coins with a view to the preparation of the British Museum catalogue, I was myself led, though reluctantly, to the conclusion that not a few modifications must be made in the accepted arrangement of the coins as set forth in Gardner's work. The rectifications that seemed called for were principally in the period before Phraates IV, and... I ventured to criticize the existing arrangement and to indicate an alternative scheme. This, with various modifications and corrections, has been adopted in the present [BMC Parthia] Catalogue. -- Wroth [BMC Parthia, xvi]
Catalogue of the Coins of Parthia (1903)

List of Parthian kings, with dates. B. List of the regal titles found on Parthian coins. C. The Parthian months. D. Years of the Seleucid era with the corresponding years of the Christian era.

In: Hatra, un patrimoine irakien en danger
Dossiers d'Archeologie, 2009, no. 334 (Jul-Aug), p. 78-81.
Abstract: "Situées dans une position géographique semblable au coeur d’une steppe semi-désertique, en marge de deux grands empires (les Romains et les Parthes), Palmyre et Hatra ont souvent été comparées. Pourtant, au-delà des nombreuses ressemblances (même période de prospérité, usage de la langue araméenne, présence de nomades « arabes ») peu de documents attestent explicitement de liens directs. C’est seulement à Doura-Europos, sur l’Euphrate, quasiment à mi-chemin entre les deux villes, qu’existent des traces de ces relations." [Author]

Abstract: Outre les résultats que nous livre l’A. sur cette prospection menée en 1974 – en particulier sur l’augmentation de l’occupation à l’âge du Fer III, contemporaine du manor de Godin Tepe – on retiendra ses réflexions méthodologiques et sa prudence sur l’interprétation des données : faut-il voir l’arrivée des Iraniens dans la région dans les changements importants qui interviennent entre l’âge du Bronze et l’âge du Fer I/II ou bien dans ceux qu’on observe entre cette seconde période et l’âge du Fer III ? C’est aussi cette prospection qui amena l’A. à forger le terme Fer IV pour ne pas utiliser la chronologie historique (mède, achéménide, séleucide, parthe) dont les modestes tessons de poterie ne rendent pas compte.
