Sylloge Nummorum Sasanidarum 2.
Alram, M. & Gyselen, R. Sylloge Nummorum Sasanidarum 2. Ohrmazd I. – Ohrmazd II. 2012. Large quarto. 610 pages, 84 plates. Casebound.
The second volume of the series "Sylloge Nummorum Sasanidarum Paris-Berlin-Wien" covers the reigns of Ohrmazd I (271/2-273), Wahram I (273-276), Wahram II (276-293), Narseh (293-302/3) and Ohrmazd II (302/3-309/10), and thus closes the gap between volumes one and three, which have already been published.
In addition to extensive numismatic commentaries (in French and German), a catalogue and illustrations, the volume contains a detailed numismatic historical introduction in English as well as chapters dealing with the beginning of the Kushano-Sasanian coin series (N. Schindel), the Paikuli inscription (C. Cereti, G. Terribili), and metal analyses of the various coin issues (Linke et al., M. Blet-Lemarquand).
This volume will therefore be an indispensable handbook for numismatists, historians, art historians or archaeologists who are interested in Iranian history or Late Antiquity.
