The Sebasteion In Aphrodisias:Structure And Meaning Of A Temple Complex For The Imperial Cult(愛芙狄詩雅的太子廟──君王崇拜中神廟的結構及意義) / 鮑維均






The significance of the development of the Roman imperial cult in Asia Minor has long been recognized by New Testament scholars. This study aims at examining one building complex devoted to the imperial cult in the first century of the Common Era: the Sebasteion in Aphrodisias. In examining the architectural design of this monumental structure, it is evident that the primary meaning of the Sebasteion resides in its ability to highlight the power of the Roman emperors and to reinforce the ties between Rome and Aphrodisias.
