Condition Report

Very rare first edition. Erudite dissertation of the philologist and historian of the Academy of Wittemberg, who comments on the ancient sources related to Serapis, associated, in Egyptian and Greek mythology, with Osiris, Hermes or Hades: god of fertility and medicine, but also king of the dead in Tartarus . His cult spread throughout the ancient world and in the Roman Empire.Worthy of note is the fact that the destruction of the temple of Serapis in Alexandria in 385 marked the end of paganism in the Roman Empire.
