You can learn a lot from a tombstone. This is dedicated to the memory of little Publius Albius Memor, by his parents. Their names suggest a Greek freedman origin, but they do not put the proud L after their names that indicates their status as "liberti" or freed slaves. Quite the contrary. Albius Memor is shown wearing a large stone pendant or "bulla" and the "toga praetexta", both things that only free-born boys could wear. But his parents want us to know that he was not only free-born, but a citizen, as the inscription includes his voting tribe, the "tribus Fabia". Normally a boy was assigned his voting tribe at age sixteen, so Memor, strictly speaking, wasn't yet eligible. His hairstyle dates this to the time of Trajan, in the first decade of the second century, but what lingers is the sad pride of bereaved parents. "To the departed shades of P. Albius Memor, son of Publius, Fabian. He lived five years, six months, six days. His parents P. Albius Threptus and Albia Apollonia [erect this monument] to their sweetest son." Their sweetest son. You can still feel the knife of grief. #tomb #tomba #monument #monumento #portrait #ritratto #ancientrome #rom#romaca #museicapitolini #capitolinemuseums #rome #roma #ig_roma #ig_rome #igersroma #igersrome #instarome #instaroma #new_photolazio #volgoroma #volgoarte #detailsofrome #tesori_italiani #noidiroma #shotz_of_italia #top_roma_photo #topromephoto
