Overview

Seven papers, from a workshop held in London in 1998, reflect on what single inscriptions or epigraphy as a whole can tell us about the topographical shape of Roman Italy. The collection aims to explore the epigraphic evidence for the relationship between Rome and the rest of Italy and to show that the actual physical appearance of the inscription and any associated artwork had as important a message as the actual words. The scholarly papers discuss: the colonisation of Interamna Nahars; the Rapino Bronze, the Touta Marouca and sacred prostitution in early central Italy; the municipal magistracies of Numerius Cluvius; building inscriptions in Republican Italy; the funerary commemoration of Italian gladiators; the album of Canusium; politics and religion in the ager Laurens .
