This paper highlights some of the memory strategies employed in the Roman world, focusing in particular on funerary monuments and the cemetery. How was the memory of the dead promoted and to whom was this important? A case study of the tombstones of the Second Augustan legion seeks to recreate the roles of these particular monuments and explores how the military cemetery served to promote both individual and collective memory.
