Le bestiaire des princes clients du Proche-Orient romain : animaux symboliques et propagande (Ier s. av. J.-C. - Ier s. apr. J.-C.)

= Paper =
The Commagenian, Nabataean and Iturean princes, and even Herod the rex iudaicus, used the image of the eagle as a symbol of their authority. However, the meaning of these eagles was different according to the context. Other images of animals appeared in the iconography of the near-eastern “friends of the Romans”: horses, dromedaries and also a symbolic and zodiacal bestiary in Commagene and Pontus.
