Roman tombstone of a certain Gaius Popillius, who was shown on a representative chair. In front of him is probably his slaveholding a scroll and making the gesture of “horns”, thus drawing the misfortune away from his master.
On the tombstone there is an inscription in Latin and Greek, which presents a dialogue between the deceased and a potential passer-by:
– Greetings, Gaius Popillius!
– And to you, whoever you are.
The object is dated to the mid-1st century BCE. The artifact is now in the Archaeological Museum of Thessaloniki (Greece).
