The Sylloge Nummorum Parthicorum is an international research project with the aim of using coins as an important primary source for a better understanding of the history and culture of the Parthian period , c. 248 BC – AD 224.
The Directors of the Project, Michael Alram (Vienna), Vesta Sarkhosh Curtis (London) and Fabrizio Sinisi (Vienna) are working with an international team and holdings from some major museums in the world.
Two volumes have been published so far: SNP7 (2012) and SNP 2 (2020), and SNP 5 is due next year.
Michael Alram and Vesta Curtis will be speaking about the challenges, the results and the way forward. It is also beyond exaggeration to state that the SNP Project has given a new impetus to Parthian Numismatics in particular and Parthian Studies in general.
