If you're interested in the whole concept of Roman epitaphs, I can't recommend enough Death in Ancient Rome by Valerie Hope [0]. It is a fascinating perspective on the culture of the Roman Empire which demonstrates ideas that were important to them in a way that couldn't be known otherwise. I read loads of books on the Roman Empire, but I could not put this book down. I read it in a very short amount of time. If you only buy three books on the Roman Empire, this should be one of them! Also, you can click on this link confident that it's not a stupid referral.
