Chapter Summary

This chapter begins with the discussion on the rated power of the Emperor presence: writing, reading and invocation of the name of the Emperor. The act of naming is equivalent to affirm life, and thereby to sanctify a person, which could explain a graphic and morphological approximation of the Latin terms nomen and numen, during the Augustus period. The oath of loyalty to the emperor is usually paid by the invocation of his nomen and its numen. By extrapolation, the presence of the name of the emperors in space seems endless when one notes that many texts mileages were "updated" over the reigns. The chapter discusses the moral and religious epithets in the Syrian provinces. The imperial triumphalism epithets pietas is accompanied by a genuine because of Greco-Roman traditions and because of displayed search of political legitimacy from the reigning sovereigns. The original text of the chapter is in French.

Keywords: Emperor presence; Greco-Roman traditions; moral epithets; rated power; religious epithets; Syrian provinces
