Example text

C'est encore un militaire, semble-t-il, qui consacra un autel a Mercure-Mithra dans le mithreum d'Apt, car le dedicant, M. Titius Optatus, nous est aussi connu par une inscription en l'honneur de Mars, dieu de la guerre. 2 Nous ne savons rien ni du M. Julius Maternianus de Mons Seleucus, ni du T. ] de Bourg-StAndeol,3 Leurs tria nomina donnent a penser qu'ils etaient citoyens romains (et comme tels ils pouvaient etre legionnaires). Il serait aventureux d'identifier le second avec un centurion de la IIe legion Auguste, porteur du meme surnom, mais dont no us ignorons le nomen.

L'emploi de l'expression deum invictum, ou de toute autre analogue, pour designer l'image m~me du dieu (par opposition au numen qui est informel et invisible) n'est pas inconnu a Rome ou l'on trouve des formules comme: invictum deum dedic(avit),3 deum invictum Solem ... 5 A Lucey,6 Deo invicto est suivi d'un N ou Mommsen proposait (dubitativement d'ailleurs: lortasse) de reconnaitre l'initiale de Nabarzi ou Navarzi, d'apres elL, Ill, 3481 et VI, 742. Pour F. Cumont, N pourrait avoir ete une faute pour M, ce qui est beaucoup plus vraisemblable.

Sur le role que la VllIe legion Auguste a pu jouer dans INSCRIPTIONS 41 la Iere legion Minervia dedie un autel aux «Meres» des Pannoniens et des Dalmates pour le salut de Septime-Severe. 1 Les soldats du limes rheno-rhetique et danubien, ou le mithriacisme etait florissant, devaient etre assez nombreux a Geneve, comme a Lyon, pour y implanter ou y renforcer le culte du dieu tauroctone.
