Leucothéa de Segeira

Abstract : The study of the dedication to the goddess Leucothea of Segeira is in keeping with the preparation of the eleventh volume of Inscriptions grecques et latines de la Syrie, which will be devoted to Mount Hermon (Jabal esh-Sheikh). Though establishing the Greek text does not pose any problem, it appears necessary to complete its commentary. The ritualistic and mystical interpretation, which has been favoured for more than a century, is abandoned in favor of a new hypothesis which focuses on previously neglected data: firstly, the association of a funerary expression with a votive text; secondly, the relationship of this text to the archaeology and the historical geography of Mount Hermon.
