Emperor Worship at Herculaneum Part 2

I have noted the earlier posts in the series here and here.

Again, the 2016 St. Andrews Symposium on Divine Sonship is of interest for the current posts.

For earlier PaleoJudaica posts on Heculaneum, especially its library of carbonized scrolls, see here and here and follow the many links.
