Parthian coinage was produced within the domains of the Parthian Empire (247 BC – 224 AD).

The Parthians minted coins exclusively in bronze and silver, with the silver getting debased to billon in some issues in the second half of the series

Denominations minted in bronze include the chalkous (approx. 1.25 gm.; 8 chalkoi = 1 obol; 48 chokoi = one drachm), dichalkous, and tetrachalkous.

The annihilation at Carrhae 53BC was the worst defeat for the Roman Republic since its horrific loss at Cannae over 160 years earlier.

Plutarch estimates that of the original 43,000 Romans engaged, 20,000 were killed and 10,000 were captured.

The Roman general Crassus was killed and for his greed the Parthia's poured gold down his throat
