Histoire et épigraphie de la Gaulanitide : le cas de Mashara (Syrie)

Abstract : History and epigraphy of the ancient Gaulanitis: the case of Mashara. The inscriptions are an invaluable source of informations on Gaulanitis' villages under the Roman empire. Most of them date back from the period between the second to the seventh century AD: as in the neighbouring Hawran, the texts are usually engraved in the local basalt, written in Greek, and they deal with the pagan cults, the foundation of Christian churches and martyria, the private and collective estates, and the funerary customs. The discoveries made in Mashara since 1960, and partly kept today in the Qunaytra museum, give an idea of the available documentation about one of the local communities.
