Le sanctuaire d'Ain el-Fijé et le culte du Barada

Abstract : A Greek dedication was discovered in 2007 inside the spring station of ‘Ayn al-Fijeh (Barada valley, Syria). This text supplements the information on one of the Roman sanctuaries of ancient Abilene. The issue of the architecture of the holy place is then taken into consideration after the photographs of the remains still in situ. The sanctuary of Fijeh is depicted on the coins of Damascus. It was consecrated to the river-god Barada, known under the Greek name Chrysorrhoas since the Hellenistic period and honoured in Damascene as well as in Abilene under the Roman empire.
