Abstract

The Greeks, both communities and private persons, often attributed to members of the imperial family honorary titles that they did not officilly have. Livia was regarded as Thea Sebaste in Ioulis, Ioulia as Sebaste in Apollonia, Caius Caesar as Parthikos in Kos, Domitian as Theos Aniketos (invictus) in Aphrodisias, and Sabina as Sebaste in Perge. These honorary titles always appear in a cultic context. This suggests that for the Greeks such inofficial titles were comparable with epithets of gods.
