Les collègues du prince sous Auguste et Tibère: de la légalité républicaine à la légitimité dynastique

L. a. restauration par Auguste de l. a. collégialité à los angeles tête de l'État ne constitue pas le moindre des paradoxes d un régime qui reposait par ailleurs sur le charisme du pnnceps. Il y avait là une expérience de gouvernement qui avait une originalité et qui mérite une étude d ensemble. los angeles permanence au début de l'Empire de l. a. proposal de collega est un phénomène bien attesté qui justifie l'attention portée à l'analyse des pouvoirs exercés dans un cadre collégial; ce qu'il est d'usage de désigner par l. a. «co-régence » n'est donc pas une fiction juridique et s'apparente à une réalité du droit public.

The Meteora: 8. and 9. Agiou Stefanou Monastery; 10. Varlaam Monastery; 11. Metamorfoseos Monastery. Kastoria: 12. Church of the Taxiarchos. 11 inches. From Anoyanakis, Greek Popular Musical Instruments, 97, fig. 61. Permission of the Stauroniketa Monastery, Mt. Athos. Strictly speaking, the Greek word "semantron" should be reserved for wooden instruments, large or small, struck with wooden mallets. The metal instrument of iron or copper is more properly des­ ignated a sideron (σίδηρον), meaning "iron," or "holy iron" (άγιον σίδηρον or άγιοσίδερο) (cf.

Permission of the author. 34 The board is hewn with an axe and must not be split or cracked. Its shape is not perfectly straight but slightly curved. Each end is either rounded or terminates in a sim­ ple ornamental shape in which one to five small holes are bored (figure 7). 35 The hand semantron can be held in two ways.
