Luoghi, monumenti, “epigraphic habit”: Note sulle necropoli tardoantiche della parte orientale della “Venetia” et “Histria”
Abstract The paper examines the Late Antique funerary landscape and its epigraphic record in the towns of Eastern Venetia (Aquileia, Iulia Concordia, Tergeste, Iulium Carnicum, Forum Iulii). Some cases are studied to outline the materiality of the region’s epigraphic culture and its relation with the topography of preexisting cemeteries. Unfortunately, for several contexts (even important ones like Aquileia) the reconstruction can only be fragmentary, due to the effects of spoliation and reuse that have completely uprooted the ancient contexts. Several cases of continuity with the burial grounds of the Imperial period are evident, as well as a small number of tombs that cannot immediately be attributed to the new religion, according to the taphonomic choices.
