"Horos Dios" draws on a wide variety of literary and archaeological evidence to argue that an Archaic "horos" inscription and other rock cuttings on the northeast slope of the Hill of the Nymphs in Athens are remnants of a shrine of Zeus Meilichios, a popular god of purification worshipped widely in Athens, Attica, and the greater Greek world.

This volume brings together scholars in religion, archaeology, philology, and history to explore case studies and theoretical models of converging religions. The twenty-four essays offered in this volume, which derive from Hittite, Cilician, Lydian, Phoenician, Greek, and Roman cultural settings, focus on encounters at the boundaries of cultures, landscapes, chronologies, social class and status, the imaginary, and the materially operative. Broad patterns ultimately emerge that reach across these boundaries, and suggest the state of the question on the study of convergence, and the potential fruitfulness for comparative and interdisciplinary studies as models continue to evolve.
