MESTRE, Francesca. Sobre la Diosa Siria o un posible regreso a casa de Luciano de Samosata. Synthesis (La Plata) [online]. 2007, vol.14, pp. 31-51. ISSN 0328-1205.
The De Dea Syria belongs, in the manuscript tradition, to the corpus of Lucian of Samosata. His authorship, however, has been discussed: while some perceive in it clear non-lucianic elements, others do not find them conclusive proofs, considering the usual evasive character of Lucian. Assuming that his author is actually Lucian -or, in any case, a hellenized Syrian of imperial times-, the analysis of descriptions, narrative, language and narrator-text, give valuable information on fusion and interaction among cultures in the Roman Empire.
