Studies in the ancient history of Northern Iraq by David Oates ( Book )
5 editions published between 1968 and 2005 in English and held by 389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This is a facsimile reprint of the trail-blazing book by David Oates which has been out-of-print far too long. It is primarily the report of his survey and excavation of sites in northern Iraq between 1954 and 1958. But it is at the same time a memorial to the great explorer, Sir Aurel Stein, whose pioneer field-work on the Roman frontiers in Iraq in 1938-39 had provided the initial stimulus. Apart from preliminary summaries, this work remained unpublished in the difficult years between 1939 and Stein's death in Kabul in 1943." "Subsequent examination of Stein's draft-manuscript showed that further investigation and a more leisurely assessment were demanded by the range and importance of the subject and by changing perspectives. With the aid of the Stein bequest to the British Academy, David Oates gave new substance to 'the lost traveller's dream', extending it widely into a more general account of the Mesopotamian scene from the Assyrian period in the second millennium B.C. to the struggles of Rome and Byzantium with the Parthians and Sasanians in the early centuries A.D. The book concludes with a study of little-known Hellenistic, Roman and Parthian pottery, mostly from the author's excavations."--BOOK JACKET

The Lexicon of Greek Personal Names is a unique and momentous on-going scholarly project. Its intention is to provide those engaged in the study of the Greek world with a list, accompanied by full, itemized evidence, of any personal name known from literature, inscriptions, papyri, vases, coins, and other objects. The chronological range is from the earliest period (though excluding Mycenean names) to about the seventh century AD; the arrangement, both with each of the alphabetically arranged entries and in the work as a whole, is regional
