Abstract
  • This thesis reassesses the much debated identification of the building GD 80 on Delos as a synagogue. First, the literary, epigraphic, and archaeological evidence and its significance for determining the function of the building is critically analyzed. Second, the Delian complex is compared with several other pre-70 CE buildings in Judea and Ostia that also have been interpreted as synagogues. It is argued that any definite identification of the building GD 80 is not currently possible.
