Title: Bel at Palmyra and Elsewhere in the Parthina Period
Author(s): DALLEY, Stephanie
Journal: ARAM Periodical
Volume: 7 Issue: 1 Date: 1995
Palmyra has been studied mainly by scholars whose background is either in Graeco-roman studies, or else in West Semitic languages. Its architecture includes such eminently Greek features as an agora, a colonnaded street and a theatre. Yet its main temple is dedicated to the god Bel, a Babylonian epithet from the sphere of East Semitic language.
