“The Carthaginians, who clearly had the gods against [...] decreed to propitiate the outraged gods by any means. And since they had not welcomed either Kore or Demeter among their cults, they appointed their most distinguished citizens as priests, raised statues to the goddesses with every solemnity and made sacrifices according to the Greek ritual ". Diod. XIV, 77, 4-5. With these words Diodorus Siculus narrates the "import" of the cult of Demeter, one of the most famous divinities of the Greek world, in ancient Carthage. The historian attributes the responsibility for this phenomenon more precisely to the impious Carthaginian general Imilcone, who violated the temple of the goddess in Syracuse in 397-396 BC. However, was this really so? What is the historical value of this testimony, and what is the role of archaeological data in the composition of the fresco of the encounter between two civilizations, the Greek and the Punic, which gives rise to the arrival of Demeter in the Punic world? Kalligeneia proposes to tackle the theme by looking at the particular case-study of Carthaginian Sardinia, adopting an interdisciplinary and systematic perspective as much as possible. The result is a compendium in which the epistemological tools of archeology, cultural anthropology and the history of religions merge to highlight the attributes of divinity. Based on this premise, a real catalog of Sardinian archaeological contexts is created which maintain a more or less close relationship with "demetrian" religiosity. The result is a very particular portrait of the goddess of the earth, which is located exactly on the border between the Greek and the Punic world.
