Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses the observations concerning the representations of central government to manage specific areas of Syrian provinces in terms of economic and military objectives. Districts Batanea, Trachonitis and Auranitis located on the steppe margins of Syria have a particular physical and human geography that reflect the historical and archaeological sources. The chapter presents an overview on the forest imperial domains in Lebanon. During the establishment of the corpus of Hadrian forest inscriptions in Mount Lebanon by JF Breton, 186 epigraphic texts were studied. The assumption discussed with respect to the imperial concern not only aimed to exploit the natural resources, but also to protect them. The imperial area of Mount Lebanon was logically managed by Procurators: C. Umbrius and Q. Vetius Rufus. Some imperial domains attested after the first Jewish War suggests the imperial confiscations in the Lebanon. The original text of the chapter is in French.
