Aršāma and his World: The Bodleian Letters in Context

Volumes I-III

Edited by Christopher J. Tuplin and John Ma

Oxford Studies in Ancient Documents

  • A commentary on the Bodleian letters in unprecedented detail
  • The first authoritative publication of Aršāma's seal, a rare example of a seal known to be in use in different places at widely removed dates
  • Thematic essays provide context for the letters and bullae both as communicative objects in their own right and as a gateway to administrative and economic institutions of the Achaemenid world
