Publication : 1996 In : Les élites municipales de l'Italie péninsulaire des Gracques à Néron : actes de la table ronde de Clermont-Ferrand (28-30 novembre 1991) / sous la direction de Mireille Cébeillac-Gervasoni. Naples-RomeDescription : p. 227-246Langue : Italien. Auteur principal: Fontana, Federica Résumé : The analysis of epigraphic and archaeological material of the sacred context of Monastero di Aquileia has led to identifying on th terracotta pediment of the temple Apollo, Artemis and another figure of matronly type (Athena, Latona?), to whom were associated, probably as marginal figures, Boreas and Orethyia, whose myth is traditionally linked, in the Athens of the fifth century B.C., to the maritime imperialism following the victory over the Persians. The couple of Appolo and Diana seem to have, also at Aquileia, distinctly anti-barbarian characteristics. The dedicatory act of "Tampia", instead, relating to a sacellum of "Diovis", reveals the probable intention of recovering a cult typical of the area of origin of its "gens", "Praenest"..Sujets:politique -- élite -- religion grecque -- panthéon grec -- temple -- sculpture -- terre cuite Chrono:Antiquité romaine -- République romaine Lieux:Italie -- Aquilée Anthroponymes:Apollon -- Artémis Mots libres: élite municipale .
