Sidonia Dea


Please add updates or make corrections to the NumisWiki text version as appropriate.
     Sidonia dea, or goddess of the Sidonians, is
believed to have been the same object of worship
as that called Europa by the Greeks, Astaroth,
or Astarte by the Hebrews, and Venus Caelestis
by the African colonists of the Sidonians. Nor
is she otherwise considered by FroŽlich, who
shows her (Ann. Syr. p. 113) on many Greek
Imperial coins to be denominated Dea
Syria
