Texte intégral

1Arsacid numismatic iconography and titolature show that the Parthians deliberately followed Hellenistic patterns to achieve political and propaganda aims focused on bolstering the ideological foundations of their kingship. Royal iconography shows the Hellenisation of the portrait under Mithradates I, while the Parthian archer of the drachm reverses was inspired by the Seleucid Apollo on omphalos. The coin titolature, much richer in comparison to Seleucid patterns, is divided in titles referring to the kings’ political and religious status, royal victories, personal qualities, family links.
