A catalogue and discussion of the social meaning and family relationships behind the funerary monuments of Roman France. Hope aims to reconstruct the stories associated with monuments from their inscriptions, artworks, dimensions, type and location. The catalogue entries, which include descriptions and inscriptions, are preceded by a discussion of the gender, age, social status and title of the dead, funerary monuments of soldiers and people with other occupations, such as gladiators, freedmen, family tombs as well as consideration of the Roman way of mourning and commemorating the dead.
