Des chapelles d’or pour apaiser les dieux. Au sujet des aphidrymata carthaginois offerts à la métropole tyrienne en 310 av. J.-C.

Abstract : Diodorus Siculus (XX 14) relates the siege of Carthage by Agathocles and the offering of golden chapels, inspired by the local temples, offered by the Carthaginians to the Tyrian Heracles in order to calm his wrath and to reestablish the links with the metropolis and its gods. In this context, Diodorus uses the Greek concept of aphidrymata for the Punic gifts. The paper explores the meaning of this term and its symbolic significance in relation with the network connecting the Tyrian metropolis with the Carthaginian colony.
