The book collects eight contributions presented during the conference organised on 25 May 2021 at the Archaeological Museum of Oderzo, Fondazione Oderzo Cultura, towards the end of the exhibition L’anima delle cose. Riti e corredi dalla necropoli romana di ‘Opitergium’. The proceedings expand the research framework regarding the Opitergium necropolis of Roman and late antiquity ages, addressing specifically funerary monumentality, epigraphic documentation and funerary rituals. Some peculiar finds discovered within burial equipment are examined too (pairs of miniature ollas, writing tools, a bucket made with reused foils), also in relation to the wider context of the Veneto region and northern Italy.
