Abstract

447 237 ff. (p. 121), 253 ff. (p. 127) ) as being entirely 'diesseitig'. The king merely promised 'Wein... und Gesang' to his people. However, the terminology, as D. himself notes, does not always point in that direction (lxapoiq lxveai ev8cci?,oaw ÈÀ1t[aEÇ After all, the cult is for Antiochus and Zeus Oromasdes c.s. ; in ancient religion piety and having a good time are by no means mutually exclusive (0vai« means both sacrifice and the meal afterwards I). In the mystery-cult of e.g. Dionysus the worshippers spent a good deal of their time in eating and drinking, to put it mildly. Does that mean that the eschatological element is absent? It may just be that it is not our kind of eschatology but that should not lead us to deny the very existence of any eschatology. Admittedly it is a problem whether or not there is any genuine religiosity (and not merely expression of political loyalty) in ancient ruler-worship. I feel that the possibility should not be denied too quickly (cf. my article in H.Th.
