Les dieux-fleuves dans le monde grec (Grèce, Grande-Grèce, Sicile, Asie mineure) : mythes, cultes et représentations

Abstract : Who were the river gods of the Ancient Greeks ? What place did they occupy in their daily lives ? What narrative traditions were linked with these deities ? Were they minor deities ? How were they represented by the Greeks ? Did they have specific traits ? What were the ritual practices dedicated to the river gods ? In short, what were the various cultural and cult elements of the river gods in the Greek world ? This dissertation attempts to provide some answers to these questions. The first part of this work is focused on the study of the origins, nature and functions of the river gods in Greek traditions. The second part examines the fields of action and the functions of these deities through iconographic sources. The aim was not to dissociate the mythological dimension of these deities from their more concrete dimension in the life of the Greeks : every cultural and cult aspects of the river gods are approached through different types of sources whether literary, iconographic or epigraphic.
