R E V I E W S Helmut Humbaeh, Baktrische Sprachdenkmiiler, 2 parts. Wiesbaden, 1966, 1967. 142 pp., 16 pp. and 32 plates. Since the first publication of the Bactrian inscription of Surkh Kotal by the late A. Maricq in 1958, much has been written about this major remain of the language, as well as about the legends on coins, seals and minor inscriptions. 1 Professor Humbach in the present publication gathers all known materials written in the Bactrian language and translates them, correcting others, as well as his own previous publications. The second part of the publication consists of hand-drawings of the modified Greek alphabets used in the inscriptions, plus the legends on Kushan, Kushano-Sasanian and Hunnie-Turkic coins, the seal legends, followed by photographs of inscriptions on stone and parchment or paper. The photographs of the coins and seals, discussed by Hurnbach, may be found in the companion work of Professor Robert G6bl of Vienna, which is indispensable for controlling the readings of Humbach. Furthermore, the latter refers to G6bl's classification in identifying the coins and seals? Before discussing details of Humbach's publication some general remarks may be of interest.
