Après une creation où l'auteur s'attache à situer sur los angeles carte les limites exactes de los angeles province romaine de Mésie supérieure, los angeles première partie de ce livre étudie successivement les monuments cultuels de Mithra, puis de Jupiter Dolichénus, enfin des autres divinités orientales (Cybèle, Isis et Sérapis). En deuxième partie, un catalogue regroupe dans le même ordre les lines épigraphiques, iconographiques, archéologiques de ces cultes attestées jusqu'à présent en Mésie supérieure.

Sample text

These four millennia occupy the attention of Chapters 2–7. Some readers may wish to start straight in with Chapter 2 and skip Chapter 1, which looks, briefly, at the Balkans during the long, local upper Palaeolithic and sets the scene for the major changes which occur after 6500 BC. Chapter 2 is the first of three chapters which examine the thousand-year period between 6500 and 5500 BC. It considers the different ways in which people marked out particular places in the landscape and established small camps and larger villages.

Since many of these latter species could be 19 SETTING THE SCENE (BEFORE 6500 BC) precisely and predictably located in the landscape, they provided reliable alternatives and thus could have been exploited, when necessary, to make up for any failures in hunting the four riskier species of the principal group. The distinction is important as it can help to refine our understanding of hunting activities and site selection. In their early phases, sites like Bacho Kiro probably served as temporary foci for hunting activities.

In other cases, as in the north-east and north-central regions of Palaeolithic Europe, Aurignacian sites themselves contain leaf forms, although in limited numbers. In the Balkans proper, assemblages of leaf-points appear at a significant number of sites and are especially well documented in Bulgaria at Samuilitsa, Muselievo, Shiroka Polyana and Temnata Dupka, with isolated and unstratified finds coming from the Rhodope mountains (Ivanova and Sirakova 1995). Further to the south, leaf-points appear at Kokkinopolis and Amalias; to the north they have been found at Ripiceni-Izvor in north-eastern Romania (Paunescu 1981).
