I am thankful to generous assistance that I have received for identifications of coins in this section from Mr. Pieter Anne Van't Haaff whose forthcoming book on Elymais Catalogue to be published by CNG. Numbering is based on De Morgan�s work; however sub-grouping of different types inside brackets is of Mr. Van�t Haaff.
