Old Persian

I could not go to the seminar unfortunately but managed to get the document with a bibliography. So here we are:

Brandenstein, W. & Mayrhofer, M., 1964. Handbuch des altpersischen. Wiesbaden: Harrassowitz.
Mayrhofer, M. 1978. Supplement zur Sammlung der altpersischen Inschriften. Wien: Österreichische Akademie der Wissenschaften.
Meillet, A and Benveniste, E. 1931. Grammaire du vieux-perse 2nd ed. Paris: Librairie Orientale. An important work on OP grammar but now very out of date on a number of points.
Kent, R.G. 1953. Old Persian: grammar, texts, lexicon. 2nd ed. New Haven: American Oriental Society. The standart reference work about OP in English, but a few more texts have been discovered (see Mayrhofer, 1978)
Schmitt, R. 1981. Altpersische Siegel-Inschriften. Wien: Österreichische Akademie der Wissenschaften.
Skjaervø, P.O. 2003. An introduction to Old Persian. Online Harvard course materials (last visited 4 Nov 2009)
