Parthian Strongholds in Turkmenistan

world is smouldering - and no caballero can stand by it, so let us remember the victims of the latest terrorists' attacks over Sinai, in Lebanon, Kenya, France et so on, the list goes on. Pacem aeternam to all victims and condolences to their families.
Just one side comment - in wake of these attacks usually respective governments take away ... the freedoms and liberties of their own citizens. Beware, for one of the American Founding Fathers and US President and  said ''Those who surrender freedom for security will not have, nor do they deserve, either one.'' - more quotes on Liberty.

I would like to link to this article written by prof. Marek Jan Olbrycht titled "Parthian Cities and Strongholds in Turkmenistan' - great article it is and a must to all interested in the Parthian and Central Asia civilization.
The article includes information about the ancient city of Nisa, and the Old Nisa Italian missions are described on this site.
