SOL MALACHBELUS (BELUS)

a shrine of the tutelary god of the city of Palmyra, whose cult was established in Rome by the Palmyrenes before the introduction of Sol by Aurelian, certainly before 102 A.D., and perhaps in the Flavian period. The evidence for this cult is epigraphical (CIL vi. 50-52, 709, 710 (=30817: Cap. Mus. Cat. p. 47, No. I), 31034, 31036; IG xiv. 971, 972; cf. Zos. i. 61:῾Ηλίου καὶ Βήλου ἀγάλματα) and indicates a site on the right bank of the Tiber, on the Via Portuensis, near the limits of the city (HJ 646; Rosch. iv. 1147, 1150; WR 363).
