Phoenician Maritime Religion: Sailors, Goddess Worship, and the Grotta Regina
Devotion to the goddess Tanit/Tinnit, a permutation of ‘Aˇstarte, took place in Mediterranean cave sanctuaries and on Phoenician ships. Employing both material and textual evidence, it is argued that her worship at sea and at port required a degree of religiouscompetency of seamen that served as crew and combatants on trading vessels and military vessels, respectively. With the Phoenician priesthood centered in cities, coastal inhabitantswould have depended on part-time officiants to supervise and perform certain rites. Reasons for the lack of mention in the literature of this non-elite class are proposed.
