The Epigraphy of Death: Studies in the History and Society of Greece and Rome

Synopsis

Tombstones provide the largest single category of epigraphical evidence from the ancient world. However, epigraphy �6 the study of inscriptions �6 remains, for many students of history and archaeology, an abstruse subject. By marrying epigraphy and death, the contributors to this collection hope to encourage a wider audience to consider the importance of inscribed tombstones.
