(p.376) (p.377) 17 Some Questions Regarding the Numismatics of Pre-Islamic Merv
After Alexander: Central Asia before Islam


British Academy

This chapter aims to address questions concerning the numismatics of pre-Islamic Merv. Most of the coins from ancient Merv were excavated by the South Turkmenistan Archaeological Multi-disciplinary Expedition (YuTAKE) between 1992 and 2000, but there is not a single reliable coin of the fourth century BC. The Sasanian coinage of the fourth and fifth centuries AD is well represented by coin finds from the city sites of Merv, but there are no registered coins of Ardashir II.

Keywords:   numismatics, pre-Islamic Merv, YuTAKE, coins, Ardashir II
