Very interesting article on possible chemical warfare use by the Persians against the Romans in 256 AD during the siege of Dura-Europos .

Just acquired this book in the same vein:

Greek fire, poison arrows, and scorpion bombs :biological and chemical warfare in the ancient world by Adrienne Mayor.

I'm interested in the scorpion bombs.
