- Please excuse the cross-posting.
Today, 28 March 2008, Parthia.com celebrates its 10th anniversary online.
The site has grown to more than 550 web pages about Parthia and it is the
number #1 ranked site for "Parthia" searches on Google and other major
search engines. More than 357,000 have visited the home page alone, and the
web site provides an average 2500 page views per day to 1200 visitors with
an average visit time of 13 minutes.
Parthia.com is a noncommercial educational web site about the Parthians and
their sub-kingdoms of Characene, Elymais and Persis. The primary focus is on
numismatics, but the site is not just a virtual coin collection. Visiting
Parthia.com will give you insight into Parthian art, history, archaeology,
geography and more. It is an excellent place to find references to books,
articles, maps and other resources for further study.
To mark this anniversary, the site is being updated with new web pages that
include all known Parthian coin types. The project is now over 50% complete
(Sellwood types 1-49 thus far); each coin type includes the number of
examples contained in the Parthia Digital Catalog database. A list of the
new pages is available at http://parthia.com/site_new.htm
Please take this opportunity to visit the updated Parthia.com.
