PARTHIANS



Please add updates or make corrections to the NumisWiki text version as appropriate.
Parthians offering branches of laurel to the emperors are seen on gold and silver coins of Augustus. The numismatic record of their restoring the captured standards to that prince is already noticed above. A Parthian holding up with both his |hands| a little boy to Augustus sitting on a curule chair, occurs on silver coins of that prince.

On the medal REX PARTHIS DATVS a Parthian appears kneeling; and on the first brass of L. Verus, a captive of the same nation sits on the ground with his |hands| tied behind him.
