En deuxième partie, un catalogue regroupe dans le même ordre les strains épigraphiques, iconographiques, archéologiques de ces cultes attestées jusqu'à présent en Mésie supérieure.

La faith mithriaque est los angeles plus abondamment représentée. L'auteur examine d'assez près l'imagerie mythique et liturgique du cycle de Mithra. Il montre que, contrairement à une confirmation de Cumont, le scorpion n'est pas une determine obligée de los angeles tauroctonie dans les Balkans (p. 13).

Example text

5 microns in diameter. The wind velocities, driven by the summer-winter freezing and thawing of significant portions of the atmosphere can reach 400 km/h (250 mph). However, the surface pressure on Mars is only about 7 mB and so the amount of abrasive dust that could be lofted by such a tenuous atmosphere is probably small, meaning that physical erosion should be slow. On the other hand, the thin atmosphere does mean that the surface of Mars is exposed to intense solar UV radiation and considerable temperature extremes.

Other information in the databases includes spacecraft name, date of launch, launching state, and whether it is a whole spacecraft or a debris fragment. Returned spacecraft surfaces are an important source of information about debris too small to be tracked. These can be used to measure the flux of debris particles, including density, size, speed and angle of collision. Space shuttle windows showed evidence of constant bombardment by tiny particles and these collisions were analysed to gauge the nature of the debris flux in LEO (Hyde 2000a, b).
