Theresa Goell was an archeologist who was born in New York on July 17, 1901.[1] She was a middle-aged Jewish mother from Brooklyn who, in 1947, left her husband and son to dig beneath the sanctuary of Nemrud Dagh.

Theresa was fascinated by this shrine to King Antiochus I Theos of Commagene, which had been neglected by previous archaeologists. Theresa was occasionally accompanied by her brother, the songwriter Kermit Goell.

She died in New York City in 1985, after a long illness.
