Les “mère de la cité’’ et les “fille de la cité’’ : influence et visibilité sociale

Abstract : This article deals with the identity of women honored of a civic metaphor of the family in Greece during the imperial era. Indeed, these "daughters" and "mothers of the city" remain the influential women in their city. If the politic life, in its etymological sense, is dominated by mens, women are not excluded stricto sensu from the life of the city, on the contrary. A few developed examples shed light on the investment of religious sphere by powerfull women searching for social visibility. The epigraphy testifies here all its usefulness in writing social history in ancient Greece.
