Un surplus auto-rappresentativo
La stele funeraria del liberto Lucius Ancharius Crescens ad Altino
The contribution provides the critical edition of an unpublished funerary inscription of the Roman town of Altinum. The inscription is characterized by four aspects: opistography, the mention of a pater patronus, the insertion of a clause of ‘affective prose’, and the presence of formulae related to the ‘dialogue with the passerby’ scheme. The study reconstructs the original epigraphic situation, and highlights the promoter’s self-representative strategies.
