Base de statue de Justinien ornée d'une inscription métrique (Cyrrhus, Euphratésie)

Abstract : Excavations in process under the auspicia of the Libano-Syrian Archaeological Mission of Cyrrhus-Nebi Huri came to rediscover the inscribed pedestal of a Justinianic statue. It reads a well done dedicatory poem writen in dactylic hexameters, which perfectly fits the rather archaizing and solemn poetry of the mid VIth century. This epigram illustrates the imperial ideolgy being implemented at the time, as well as it sheds light on the history of the city that was rebuild by Justinian and given the monarch's name.
