The worshippers of Atargatis in the Mediterranean from the 4th c. BCE to the 4th c. CE.” This paper will provide highlights on the cultic personnel, but also on the individuals who set up dedications and will show the geography of the cult of the goddess, basing on the epigraphical (inscriptions) and archaeological (temples) material.
