A single Roman mother Petronia Hedone with her son Lucius Petronius Philemon on a Roman marble tombstone. The object is dated 110-120 CE and was created in Campania (Italia).
The tombstone has the inscription:
PETRONIA · HEDONE · FECIT · SIBI ET · L · PETRONIO · PHILEMONI · FILIO ET · LIBERTIS · LIBERTABVSQVAE POSTERISQVAE · EORVM
that is, “Petronia Hedone made (this monument) for herself and for Lucius Petronius Philemon, her son, and for her freedmen and freedwomen and their descendants”.
