The Effects of the Imperial Cult


Abstract


Normally seen as an instrument used by Roman authorities, the imperial cult is to ensure the fidelity of their subjects. This phenomenon is evidently a two-way process in the cities of the Black Sea Pentapolis/Hexapolis. The local communities develop imperial worship in several stages, in conjunction with the degree of involvement of the Roman authorities in the region. This article will try to analyze the context this process started, and what were the actors involved and as well as the results.
