The author discusses three groups of articles from the so-called“Pahlavi Archive,” viz. 1. Financial texts, 2. Horses in the Documents, and 3. Stucco. In this survey relevant documents from the Bancroft Library in Berkeley, CA., and Berlin are published for the first time (Berk. 37, Berk. 53, Berk. 81, Berk. 109, Berk. 175B, Berk. 186) or re-edited (Berk. 100, Berk. 112, Berk. 198, Berk. 238, Berk. 255, Berlin 16, Berlin 38). They provide us with important information on the economic and cultural aspects of Zoroastrian life in early Islamic times.
