L'objet de ce travail est, comme on le voit, très précis, puisqu'il se borne à étude du culte d'Isis chez les femmes. Il faut dire que, depuis quelques années, les volumes concernant le culte d'Isis se sont multipliés et l'auteur reconnaît volontiers sa dette à leur égard. Mais l'aspect féminin du problème devait peut-être être étudié par une femme. Son petit livre est en tout cas fortress intéressant. Après un très bon chapitre sur «les views historiques», qui permet de replacer dans son cadre l'ensemble de l'exposé, S.K Heyob a réparti son travail en quatre chapitres. Tout d'abord elle s'efforce de préciser, un aspect de vue féminin, l. a. «nature essentielle d'Isis», ce qui n'est pas si facile, puisqu'elle est «polymorphe». En utilisant l'ensemble du file, l'A. montre que si, au départ, Isis est surtout celle qui pleure los angeles mort d'Osiris, elle apparaît dans le monde gréco-romain comme l'épouse vivante d'Osiris et los angeles mère dévouée d'Horus et donc comme l. a. «déesse des femmes».

Volusius had done emphasize the differences in the accounts. Suetonius puts the healing of the two men immediately after Vespasian's exit from the Serapeum, and the reception of letters announcing the death of Vitellius immediately after the healing.
