Abstract:
This thesis is an analysis and interpretation of the visual self-representation of local dynasts (often termed 'client kings') in the Roman Near East (100 BC to AD 100). The evidence for the tombs, temples, palaces and portraits of these dynasts has never previously been systematically gathered, studied, compared or interpreted. It focuses specifially on tombs palaces and portraits of the six local dynasties that have left substantial material remains: the Hasmonaeans and Herodians of Judaea, the Nabataeans of Petra, the Imraeans in Mt. Lebanon, and the dynasties of Emesa in central Syria and of Commagene on the upper Euphrates.
