This chapter studies the diverse and often contradictory trajectories of Hellenism at the great caravan city of Tadmor-Palmyra in the heart of the Syrian steppe and at the small town of Dura-Europos on the Middle Euphrates. Building on the limited evidence for the two local cultures in the pre-Roman period, the chapter explores the way in which the relation between the two sites developed. Focus is not only on the various kinds of Greek culture at stake, but also on the diverse ways in which these different forms of Greek culture interacted with the different indigenous cultural elements.

Keywords:   Syria, Palmyra, Tadmor, Dura-Europos, Hellenism, Semitic culture, Aramaic
