Numismatic Art of Persia. The Sunrise Collection, Part I: Ancient. 650 BC to AD 650. Published by Classical Numismatic Group. 2011. Hardbound.
This collection of over 1000 coins from ancient Persia represents one of the finest private collections of this coinage ever compiled. The large selections from Parthia, Persis, and the Sasanian Empire form the core of the collection. The organization of this book is fairly straightforward. Each coin series has been cataloged in its own separate section, arranged chronologically, and prefaced with a map and an essay comprising a brief intoduction to the history and coinage of the respective culture. The introductory essays are written by recognized scholars for their particular fields of research: G.R.F. Assar (Achaemenids and Parthia), Oliver D. Hoover (Hellenistic/Seleukid), Wilhelm Museler (Achaemenids and Persis), Khodadad Rhezakhani (Charakene, Elymais, Kushan, Persis, Sasanian, Kushano-Sasanian, and Iranian Huns), and R.C. Senior (Indo-Parthian & Indo-Skythian). A list of transliterated and translated legends follows the introductions to Persis and the Sasanian Empire, as the legends are cataloged in their original Aramaic and Pahlavi. Finally, select coins from each section are depicted in double-sized enlargements following their respective catalog sections.
