Persian / Zoroastrian astrology question

Googled terms: Persian astrology; Zoroastrian astrology; Zoroastrian astrological symbolism; Persian astronomy; 1st century Persian astrology.

Basically all I get are incredibly vague Wikipedia pages, or else astrologers discussing present day astrology, or discussions of Zoroastrian views on Astrology.

What I want to know is if there have been seriously scholarly works on 1st century (Pre-Sassanid) Zoriastrian / Persian astrology. Especially comparative works comparing Western (or Greek) astrology of the time with Persian astrology. Translation work would be best, but pointers to anything in particular would be appreciated.

I know this is a really hyper-specific question, but I really have no idea where else to even ask about it.
