    This first issue of Europos-Doura Varia 1 follows Doura-Europos Études (I-V) whose latest issues dealt with developments in the French-Syrian Expedition of Doura-Europos (MFSED) between 1986 and 1997. The change in the name of the site that this issue is introducing takes into account new historical discoveries that entail a shift from “Doura-Europos” to “Europos-Doura”. Europos was the name for a greek phrourion then the Hellenistic and Parthian city for five centuries. Nevertheless, the name “Doura” was used for half a century after the Roman conquest until the name “Europos” came back during the last years of the city. Therefore, Europos seems more relevant to name this site while attaching the name of Doura to it. Articles in this volume are devoted to archaeological excavations findings of this site along with papers regarding materials and historical debates. These arguments enrich perceptions of the famous expeditions of F. Cumont (1922-1924) and M. I. Rostovtzeff (1928-1937). While the MFSED relies on these accounts, the articles in this volume modify sometimes the legacy of these expeditions.
