I recinti funerari della necropoli romana di Oderzo. I dati dai contesti di scavo

Abstract

The contribution is dedicated to the funerary enclosures found in the Roman necropolis of Opitergium. There are sixteen attestations dating from the 1st to the 3rd century A.D., six of which have only been partially brought to light. The monuments are generally located on the sides of the streets along which the funerary areas developed; in most cases, only the foundations have been preserved and no funerary monument or stele with pedatura or sculptural element has been found in direct association with the structures. Some considerations are proposed on the dimensional aspects, but the few available testimonies do not allow to establish a regulation in the funerary lots distribution.
