THE EPIGRAPHICAL SCIENCE AS A RESOURCE FOR ROMAN LYDIA AND PHRYGIA ANAPLASIS (III)


(BEING CONTINUED FROM 28/06/15)

I.2. Junior Cult Personnel
Under this heading, I include the following categories: diakonoi, douloi tôn theôn, hierodouloi,hieroi, and hypotaktikoi theôn. Not only do they all have their place in Lydian and  Phrygian sanctuaries, but their legal and social status is similar. It is essential that one studies  these groups in their specific environment and time, avoiding far-sweeping generalizations  and keeping in mind the fact that the adduced terms sometimes denote a quality or a state, not a clearly defined legal status.
Although we have no documents to that effect, a census record was almost certainly kept
of the sanctuary’s dependents: in the eyes of the Romans the sanctuary was their origo, place  of registration in the tax-rolls.66 At least some of these dependants must have resided within  the temple enclosure;67 the names of all, including those having their domicile elsewhere,were entered in the tax-roll of the community under the name of the deity/temple responsible  for the payment of their poll-tax.68
