The download links can be found in the list here:

Virgil H:
Thank you for these ideas, I am headed now to the publication from Sinope for starters.


Kevin D:
Thanks for letting us know about this, Dane.

These are good quality PDFs...The Sasanian Coins volumes are 973mb and 1.5gb.

I ran the 250+ Mb volumes through Adobe Acrobat using Save as other... "Reduced Size pdf" - and they are now less than ca. 50 Mb and the images are just as good quality.
