I know that this is technically not Theravada Abhidhamma, however, I think that it is still valuable that this resource is available online in full and it will certainly complement one's understanding to read a text from a different Buddhist school. The introduction sections are particularly engrossing, and since the author is ultimately relying on the sutras (he was labeled a Sautrantika) there is really nothing here that is too alien to Theravada.

"The Abhidharmakośakārikā or Verses on the Treasury of Abhidharma is a key text on the Abhidharma written in Sanskrit verse by Vasubandhu in the 4th or 5th century. It summarizes the Sarvāstivādin tenets in eight chapters with a total of around 600 verses. The text was widely respected and used by schools of Buddhism in India, Tibet and East Asia.
Vasubandhu wrote a commentary to this work called the Abhidharmakośabhāsya. In it, he critiques the interpretations of the Sarvāstivādins, Vaibhāṣikas and others of the tenets he presented in his previous work from a Sautrāntika perspective."

Abhidharmakosabhasyam of Vasubandhu (4 vols), translated by Louis de la Vallee Poussin, English version by Leo Pruden

Tattvasiddhi (Chinese: 成實論; Japanese pronunciation: Jōjitsu-ron, previously reconstructed as the Sādhyasiddhiśāstra) authored by the Indian master Harivarman (250-350) and translated into Chinese in 411 by Kumārajīva.

A.K. Warder sees this text as outlining the Abhidharma of the Bahuśrutīya school.The Tattvasiddhi's positions are closest to those of the Sautrāntika and Sthavira nikāya. Kumārajīva's student Sengrui discovered Harivarman had refused the abhidharma schools' approach to Buddhist seven times in the text, suggesting a strong sectarian division between them and the Sautrāntikas.

In this text Harivarman attacks the Sarvastivada school's doctrine of "all exists" and the Pudgalavada theory of person. The Tattvasiddhi includes the teaching of dharma-śūnyatā, the emptiness of phenomena.
