Sarkhosh Curtis, Vesta and Stewart, Sarah, eds. (2007) The Age of the Parthians. I.B. Tauris. (The Idea of Iran)
In this book, distinguished scholars examine - from a variety of perspectives - the origins of the Parthians, their history, religion and culture, as well as perceptions of their empire through the lens of both imperial Rome and China. The Parthians were nomadic horse-warriors who left few written records, concentrating rather on a rich oral and storytelling tradition. What knowledge we have of this remarkable people derives primarily from their coinage, which mixed Hellenism with Persian influences.
