Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses numerous inscriptions to address real and symbolic relationships that existed between imperial power and space in Syrian provinces for tracing boundary markers or boundaries of civic and provincial levels. The undisguised point of convergence between the prerogatives of Diocletian and those of Jupiter is of course "Gubernat imperium", which ends to lift the ambiguity on which all the panegyric composed by Mamertinus. The author of praise, which is also the voice of power, fully reveals here the figure of the emperor surveyor, in the image of Jupiter; this view is confirmed by a Greek inscription discovered Adamas in the temple of Jupiter and honors Diocletian as the "master of all things". The chapter concludes that the inscriptions and monuments of Syrian provinces confirm that territorial control Empire remains the basis of Roman political domination. The original text of the chapter is in French.
