A dedication to Herakles, Hosios and Dikaios and Chrysea Parthenos from the Kibyratis

Thomas Corsten, Marijana Ricl

Abstract


The article contains the publication of an inscription found by the Roberts in 1948 and rediscovered in 1997 and again in 2008 in the village of Bayramlar near ancient Kibyra. It is a de­di­cation of a temple to Herakles, the Anatolian deity “Holy and Just” as the son of Herakles, and a “Golden Virgin”. The inscription was set up by three priests in the 2nd or 3rd centuries A.D. Herakles is interpreted as an Anatolian “Rider-God”, common in the region, but the identity of the “Golden Virgin” remains obscure.
