Le dossier épigraphique d’Hefzibah (202/1-195 a.C.) : chronologie, histoire, diplomatique

Abstract : The Hefzibah-Stele displays a selection of royal archives of the reign of Antiochos III concerning the villages that Ptolemaios son of Thraseas, governor and ἀρχιερεύς of Koile‑Syria and Phoenicia, possessed near the city of Skythopolis. Several dates were read differently since the editio princeps of Y.H. Landau (1966) up to the recent study of J. Heinrich (2018). It is proven today that the readings of Landau were exact and that the oldest documents date of 202-200 BC., at the beginning of the Fifth Syrian War, whereas the most recent documents date of 195 BC. This chronology leads to revise the accepted date of the taking of the title Βασιλεὺς μέγας by Antiochos III and to revisit the constitution of the archives and the genesis of their publication.
