The Lady of the Titles: The Lady of Byblos and the Search for her »True Name«
In the Phoenician inscriptions from Byblos, the most prominent deity is Baalat Gubal, »Lady of Byblos.« She has been identified with Astarte, Anat, Aschera, Aphrodite, Isis, and Hathor. The urge to find her “true name” is based on the assumption that »Lady of Byblos« cannot be a proper name, as it is semantically transparent. The paper uses categories of linguistic onomastics to demonstrate that “Lady of Byblos” can be a proper name. As the conventions of writing in two Byblian inscriptions distinguish between proper names and titles, they are ameans to prove that “Lady of Byblos” was indeed seen as a proper name by the ancient Byblians.Moreover, its semantic transparency is not exceptional in the context of divine names from the ancient Levant.
